Former Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi on Sunday dismissed the speculation that he would be Bharatiya Janata Party’s chief ministerial candidate in Assam for next year’s assembly election. In an exclusive interaction with India Today, Ranjan Gogoi, now a nominated Rajya Sabha member, said, “I am not a politician and have no such ambition or intent. Nobody has mentioned any such possibility to me.” Ranjan Gogoi also sought to make it categorical that his acceptance of a Rajya Sabha membership earlier this year is not a step towards formal introduction to politics.
