    What Ranjan said falls under freedom of speech guaranteed under the constitution (he was expressing an opinion) he should only be held in contempt if he was directly criticizing a court case he was a party to.

    You cannot expect any fair decision from our judiciary these days. They are all unfair decisions, politically motivated. What Ranjan said was the actual truth.

    Very true
