Attorney General, KK Venugopal has received a letter from Vineet Jindal seeking permission to file criminal contempt charges against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. He said that the Congress leader made lewd remarks about the Indian judiciary, tarnishing its dignity.
In the letter, Vineet Jindal also mentioned Rahul Gandhi’s recent interview, in which the Congress leader said, that there is a legal system in this country where everybody has 100 percent freedom to lift their voice. The BJP is clearly seating its supporters in all of these organisations or structures. It is clear that they are destroying the country’s institutional framework.
Jindal wrote in his letter that Rahul is accusing the country’s judicial system. He has shown contempt for the Indian judiciary. He recalled that in the case of the Prime Minister’s remarks, the Supreme Court dismissed the contempt case against him, ordering him to exercise caution in the future.
Gandhi earlier made a remark that Indian judiciary is working for BJP and that the judicial system is not working self-reliantly. Not to forget, Rahul Gandhi in his earlier statements also made remarks to the Apex Court, wherein he also said “Chowkidar Chor hai” against Prime Minister Narendra Modi in reference to the Rafale Case, where Supreme Court first initiated then closed the contempt proceedings asking him to be careful from the next time.
However, Rahul Gandhi in his recent remarks, intents to disgrace and scandalise the entire judicial system, which shows that he did not pay any heed to the warning issued to him by Apex Court.
Henceforth, according to Jindal, Rahul Gandhi committed Contempt of Court and he should be prosecuted under Section 15 of Contempt of Court Acts 1971 read with Rule 3(c) of Contempt Proceedings of Supreme Court, 1975.
