"Is it "quid pro quo"? How will people have faith in the independence of judges? Many questions," Owaisi tweeted.

Gogoi served as the 46th CJI from 3 October, 2018 to 17 November, 2019. On 9 November, 2019, the five-judge bench headed by him had delivered the verdict in the long-pending Ayodhya dispute case.

Before demitting office, Gogoi had said that the issue of pendency of cases in Indian courts is used extensively to "pull down the institution".
