A petition, which filed by BJP MP Minakshi Lekhi, mentioned Congress President made a contempt comments on Rafale judge, has been listed for hearing on Monday in Supreme Court. Friday the apex court agreed to hear the petition.
The petition was mentioned by senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi before Chief Justice of India who agreed to list the matter on Monday. The BJPhad earlier accused Congress president Rahul Gandhi of gross contempt of court. They said he attributed to the Supreme Court what it never said in its order on the Rafale deal. Rohtagi on Friday said that the Congress chief has attributed to CJI that the judges have said Chowkidar is Chor and he has given money to Anil Ambani.
Union Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also asserted that the court’s order was not a set back and that the Congress will not be able to show its face. Lashing out at Congress chief Sitharaman also said he had crossed the line of decency in his comments on the court’s order and added that it underlines his frustration that he was attributing words to the SC that it never uttered.
