Former Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi was nominated for Rajya Sabha, the upper house of parliament, today by President Ram Nath Kovind. The President's move is unprecedented - no Chief Justice has been nominated to the Upper House, usually dominated by celebrities and artistes, by the head of the state.
