The Top Court on Tuesday allowed Congress President Rahul Gandhi to file a new affidavit in connection with a contempt plea filed against him. Senior Advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi representing the Congress President Rahul Gandhi before the Highest Court tendered an apology. Singhvi on behalf of Congress President said, ‘I have wrongly attributed to my lord (SC also said that Chowkidar Chor hai), that was my error’.

The Top Court posted the matter of May 6.

While Mukul Rohatgi, lawyer of the petitioner of BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi asserted in the court, ‘He (Rahul Gandhi) deliberately put words in the mouth of SC, he has only expressed regret. Law is clear in contempt cases the line starts with an unconditional apology’.

The Supreme Court had on April 23 issued contempt notice to Congress President Rahul Gandhi after expressing dissatisfaction over the response filed by him for his remarks on the Rafale judgment. The Top court further said that it will hear the contempt plea along with the review petition on April 30.

The Top Court had on April 10 giving a jolt to Centre unanimously rejected the objections raised by Government against the review pleas filed for apex court’s decision on the Rafale deal. The Top Court also allowed the admissibility of three documents in Rafale deal as evidence in re-examining the review petitions.

Commenting on Supreme Court Observation Rahul Gandhi had reportedly said ”I am really happy that the Supreme Court has accepted the fact that the Prime Minister of India had looted the money of the IAF and given to Mr. Anil Ambani. I had been saying this since months.”

Bharatiya Janata Party outgoing MP Meenakshi Lekhi on April 15 filed a plea in the court seeking action against Rahul Gandhi for allegedly making remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi while quoting the observation of the Top Court to mislead.

BJP MP alleged that Congress President has quoted the Observation ‘willingly’ in a wrong way to mislead masses.
