Supreme Court judge MR Shah retired on Monday. In the farewell ceremony, Chief Justice DY Chandrachud has given him the noun of ‘Tiger Shah’. In a special conversation with Aaj Tak, Justice MR Shah told how he came to be called ‘Tiger Shah’. Along with this, he also responded bluntly to the question of praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2018. Justice Shah said that he has no regrets about this.
Justice Shah said- CJI Chandrachud has given him the name ‘Tiger Shah’. Behind the name Tiger is hidden the love and affection of CJI Chandrachud.
He said- CJI Chandrachud gave him this name when he was in a conference in Russia 2-3 years back. He said- We had gone to Russia for a conference. Then the CJI said, any work will be given to Tiger, Tiger will do it. It is his love and affection and respect for me. When asked about the bench, Justice Shah said – I used to enjoy sitting with everyone, because their nature is like this.
