Justice Gogoi, who will be sworn-in as the CJI on Wednesday, said Justice Misra was a remarkable judge. He said that “if we fail in endeavour to hold true to our Constitutional ideals, we will continue to kill, hate each other”, and added that the judges in the Supreme Court are all committed and they will remain committed.

“We live in times when what we should eat, wear have stopped being little things of our personal lives,” Justice Gogoi said while addressing the farewell function for the CJI.  Later, the outgoing Chief Justice said that Indian judiciary is the “most robust institution” in the world and young lawyers were assets having potential to develop the jurisprudence. “Our judiciary has been strongest judiciary in the world having capability to handle mind boggling number of cases,” Justice Misra, who will retire as the CJI on Tuesday, said while speaking at the farewell function organised at the premises of the Supreme Court.
