The BJP has amped up its attack against Congress president Rahul Gandhi over his remark against Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the Supreme Court’s Rafale verdict. The ruling party today reached the Election Commission headquarters and demanded action against Gandhi for ‘spreading lies’. “Rahul Gandhi has crossed all limits by using such level of unparliamentary language for PM. He's chief of Congress's 'gaali gang.' Have demanded action be taken against his statements, which aren't based on facts,” Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi after BJP delegation met the poll panel in New Delhi on Friday.
The development comes after BJP lawmaker Meenakshi Lekhi moved the Supreme Court seeking contempt action against the Congress president. A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said it will hear the plea on April 15. Lekhi in her plea said Gandhi has attributed his personal remarks to the top court and tried to create prejudice. Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for Lekhi, told the bench that Congress president made a remark that the "Supreme Court has said, chowkidaar chor hai" in the verdict.
