One of those includes the high profile case of procurement of Rafale fighter jets.
The bench will pronounce its verdict in this political sensitive case in which a review has been sought of the December 14, 2018, judgment by which the Narendra Modi-government was given a clean chit.
The bench headed by CJI will also pronounce its verdict on a plea seeking criminal contempt proceedings against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for wrongly attributing to the apex court his ‘chowkidar chor hai’ remark against Modi in connection with the Rafale case.
In the Rafale case, the top court would decide the pleas, including one filed by former Union ministers Yashwant Sinha and Arun Shourie and activist-lawyer Prashant Bhushan, seeking review of its December 14 judgement giving a clean chit to the Centre’s Rafale deal to procure 36 fighter jets from French firm Dassault.
Besides, a five-judge Constitution bench headed by Gogoi will pronounce judgment on the pleas seeking review of the top court’s verdict allowing women of all ages to enter the Sabarimala temple in Kerala.
