AMN / NEW DELHI
Congress President Rahul Gandhi today filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court, expressing regret over his remarks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding Rafale verdict which the apex court had said was “incorrectly attributed” to it. The Court last Monday had directed Mr Gandhi to give his explanation by today.
In the affidavit, the Congress President said he had made the statement in the heat of political campaigning which has been misused by his opponents. The court had sought Mr Gandhi’s explanation on a petition filed by BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi, who has sought criminal contempt against the Congress President. The apex court is scheduled to hear the matter tomorrow.
