Rafale: Rahul Gandhi files reply in SC on contempt notice issued to him
Congress President Rahul Gandhi today filed his reply in the Supreme Court on a notice issued to him after a contempt of court case by BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi for his remarks on the Rafale verdict.
The counsel appearing for Rahul Gandhi mentioned the matter before a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and said they are allowed to file a reply on the contempt notice. The bench allowed to file the counter affidavit.
The apex court had on 23rd April issued criminal contempt notice to Rahul for his remark on Prime Minister Narendra Modi while referring to the Rafale judgment, which the apex court said was incorrectly attributed to it.
