Trouble For Rahul Gandhi; BJP Leader To File Contempt Petition In Supreme Court

Team Republic |

Hack:

  • Ajay Agrawal of the BJP is all set to file a contempt plea against Congress president Rahul Gandhi
  • 'Rahul is liable under all 3 subsections,' BJP's Ajay Agrawal said

Ajay Agrawal of the BJP is all set to file a contempt plea against Congress president Rahul Gandhi over his attempts to interfere and display prejudice in the Justice Loya death case.

On speaking to Republic TV, Agrawal said, “Rahul Gandhi is not only a Member of Parliament but also the Congress president. A party which has ruled for decades. The day when honourable judges of the Supreme Court had their press conference, Rahul in his address said, ‘they have also made a point about Judge Loya case I think that is also something that needs to be investigated properly and needs to be looked at from highest level in Supreme Court.’ These are the words he used. He said so even though no judge explicitly spoke about the Justice Loha death.

He added,

“Rahul is liable under all 3 subsections because he scandalises the Supreme Court, interferes with the Judicial process and also interfered with the administration of Justice. An impression has gone in the people of the country that he is commanding the Supreme Court.”

The plea states,

"Thus the statement made by Shri Rahul Gandhi comes under Section 2(C)(i) (ii) & (iii) of Contempt of Court Act since a person who is a Member of Lok Sabha and National President of All India Congress Committee, presently the main opposition party of the country and this party has ruled the country earlier for decades, made such a statement which has much more affect  than anybody else. Such a remark by Shri Rahul Gandhi as he is giving some command to the Supreme court has the effect of diminishing the majesty and prestige of the Supreme Court, which is very likely to lower the esteem of the Supreme Court in the minds of the public”
