New Delhi । The Supreme Court has demanded an explanation from Rahul Gandhi over his Remark ‘Chowkidar chor hai’.
SC said that Rahul Gandhi has wrongly attributed this remark to the court. The Court demanded an explanation from him by April 22.
Gandhi had made the comments after the Supreme Court agreed to hear afresh a case related to the Rafale deal, rejecting the government’s contention that the secret documents concerning the agreement had been stolen and published in some newspapers without authorisation.
A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Deepak Gupta and Justice Sanjiv Khanna directed the hearing of the matter on April 23.
Seeking response from the Congress President on his controversial statement, Chief Justice Gogoi clarified that they had only dealt with the admissibility of certain documents related to the Rafale case.
The court order came on a contempt plea by Bharatiya Janata Party leader Meenakshi Lekhi seeking contempt action against Gandhi.
