I have heard all the three interviews given by Ranjan Gogoi to leading TV channels in which he sounded aggressive and brash as usual, besides peevish and immature.
His explanation or justification for accepting the Rajya Sabha nomination also appeared ridiculous, if not absurd. At times, it sounded laughable. His immaturity and shallowness knew no bounds when he went personal against his one-time colleagues, declaring Justice Katju "irrelevant" and discrediting Justices Madan Lokur & Kurian Joseph - with whom he had gone public to warn the nation of threat to independence of judiciary- because of their "failed ambitions". God knows or may be Gogoi knows what was their "ambition"!. No one in his right frame of mind could say that their case was of failed ambitions for having lost on Chief Justiceship against Gogoi, because it is common knowledge that they could not be candidates for the top job, being late appointees. Also, they had openly declared during their term their unwillingness to take up any post-retirement assignments.
