The report says that the Prime Minister Office (PMO) might not extend Katju's term as the PCI Chairman.
Katju had reportedly met Information & Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar recently and expressed his willingness on a second term as the council's chief.
Recently, Katju kicked up controversy with his "corruption in judiciary" remark. He had claimed that a District Judge in Tamil Nadu was elevated to an Additional Judge of the Madras High Court despite charges of corruption against him. This turned his relationship with the government sour.
