Former Chief Minister of Assam, Tarun Gogoi put on the lawyer’s hat after a span of 35 years when he stepped into the Supreme Court premises and attended the court’s proceedings on Wednesday.
The top court today took up a batch of petitions that challenged the constitutional validity of the Citizenship (Citizenship) Act or C (A) A.
Gogoi attended the court as a lawyer last time in 1983 to argue a case.
The former CM was in the court to assist his party colleague P Chidambaram.
A total of 60 petitions have been filed in the apex court against the Citizenship Act.
The Supreme Court, however, adjourned the matter till January 22, 2020, after issuing a notice to the Centre.
