In an interview to a TV channel, Justice Gogoi had allegedly said that he attended Parliament only when he felt necessary in the wake of lack of social distancing in the house amid prevailing Covid-19 curbs.

He had also reportedly said that being a nominated member of Rajya Sabha, he was not governed by any party whip.

TMC MPs Jawahar Sircar and Mausam Noor filed the notice for privilege motion alleging that Justice Gogoi’s remarks undermined the dignity of the house. 

The TMC MPs, in their notice, said the statements made by Justice Gogoi prima facie constitute a “breach of the Council” as they “undermine the dignity of the Rajya Sabha”. 

However, the notice submitted by them is yet to be admitted by the Rajya Sabha Secretariat.
