'Chowkidar Chor Hai': Rahul Gandhi files 'unconditional apology' again
New Delhi : Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday filed an 'unconditional apology' in the Supreme Court for "unintentionally" linking the top court order in the Rafale review plea with his party's campaign "Chowkidar Chor Hai" against the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
In a three-page affidavit filed by Rahul Gandhi he mentioned that he holds the Supreme Court in the “highest esteem and respect”, and sought closure of the criminal contempt proceedings filed against him by BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi.
"The deponent (Rahul Gandhi) unconditionally apologises for the wrongful attributions to this court," Gandhi said in his affidavit.
The Supreme Court will be hearing the matter on Friday.
Earlier, Rahul Gandhi had verbally apologised for his unintentional action that was massively slammed by the BJP leaders.
The Supreme Court had earlier pulled up the leader for filing a 22 page affidavit to express the regret.
