Agency News

New Delhi, Apr 15: The Congress President will file the explanation sought by the apex court over his his alleged remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Rafale issue, senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said here.

On the remarks by the Congress president, Mr Sibal said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also said that he had been given clean chit from the SC.

“He will file the explanation sought by the Supreme Court. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also said that he had been given clean chit from the SC”, Mr Sibal said while addressing the media here.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi has been asked by the apex court to explain his remarks during the Lok Sabha campaign where he attributed comments to the top court which had ruled on the admissibility of three sets of documents in the Rafale review petition.

The SC bench said Mr Gandhi had incorrectly attributed “views, observations and findings” in the Rafale case to the top court.

BJP MP and advocate Meenakshi Lekhi had filed a contempt petition against the Congress President on Friday for his attacks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that Mr Gandhi has put across his personal statement as Supreme Court’s order  and tried to create prejudice. (UNI)
