‘Chowkidaar chor hai’ : Supreme Court Notice to Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi: Supreme Court on Monday, 15th April 2019,  issued show -cause notice to Congress President Rahul Gandhi in connection with a contempt petition filed against him.

Supreme Court has sought an explanation from him by April 22. "We never said what has been attributed to us by Gandhi," SC issues a show cause notice of criminal contempt against Gandhi.

BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi moved the Supreme Court seeking contempt action against Congress president Rahul Gandhi for allegedly attributing his remarks on the recent Rafale verdict to the apex court.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi  heard the plea. Lekhi, who is a sitting Lok Sabha MP from New Delhi constituency, in her plea alleged that Gandhi has attributed his personal remarks to the top court and tried to create prejudice.

Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for Lekhi, told the bench that the Congress president reportedly made a remark that the "Supreme Court said chowkidaar chor hai" in the verdict.

The Congress president had on April 10 claimed that the apex court has made it clear that Prime Minister Narendra Modi committed a theft.
