'Chowkidar Chor Hai': Rahul Gandhi regrets his remark once again in Supreme Court
Rahul Gandhi's counter-affidavit is rather a carbon copy of the “explanation” filed by him earlier in the Supreme Court about the circumstances of his comment.
In addition to the explanation, Rahul Gandhi mentioned that he will not attribute any views, observations or findings to the court in political addresses to the media and in public speeches, unless such views, observations or findings are recorded by the court.”
With the affidavit, the Congress has requested the Supreme Court to dismiss the contempt plea filed by Bharatiya Janata Party.
The affidavit follows a notice issued by the court on April 23 on Ms. Lekhi’s petition, which stated that Mr. Gandhi had wrongly attributed the comment to the court judgement of April 10. In the order, the court agreed to hear the Rafale case review petitions on the basis of new publishment of documents about the purchase of 36 Rafale fighter aircraft.
