SC serves show cause notice to Rahul Gandhi; seeks explanation on 'Chowkidar Chor hai' remark
The Supreme Court has served a show cause notice to Rahul Gandhi over a contempt plea filed by BJP’s Meenakshi Lekhi and has sought an explanation from the Gandhi scion over his remark on PM Narendra Modi.
Rahul Gandhi, while jumping the gun had said, “ab to court ne bhi keh diya hai ki Chowkidar Chor hai,” and attributed it to the Supreme Court, while the latter never held it in its verdict.
News agency ANI tweeted, “The petitioner, BJP's Meenakshi Lekhi, has claimed in her petition 'the words used and attributed by him to SC in the Rafale case has been made to appear something else. He is replacing his personal statement as Supreme Court's order and trying to create prejudice'.”
