We have been listening to the statement-a-day from Justice Katju, Chairman. Press Council of India. He seems to have followed the maxim of make controversial statements to attract public attention. He has made several such controversial statements on various topics political and non political viz. Narender Modi, Mamta Bannerjee, Sanjay Dutt etc. Etc. which do not fall under the domain of his official duties. He has not been able to overcome his ego centric desires and appears to be motivated by political ambitions. As a former Judge, these activities were not expected of him.
2. His latest salvo questioning the democratic set up of the country and equating the people of the country as sheep and cattle is most derogatory and uncalled for. He further threatens that he will not vote and would prefer to be called as a Congress ally to prove his secular credentials. This displays his inherent political inclinations & ambitions. He is at liberty to join any political group but need to be aware that the people of this country whom he equates with sheep and cattle will shun such a herdsman. The Government should also take care about the persons suitability while making statutory appointments.
