BJP MP Moves Contempt Plea In SC Against Rahul Gandhi Over ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ Remark
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Meenakshi Lekhi on April 12, 2019, moved a criminal contempt petition in the Supreme Court against Congress president Rahul Gandhi for using the phrase 'chowkidar Chor Hai’ against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The statement was allegedly made in the wake of the Supreme Court’s recent judgment concerning maintainability of the review petition filed in the Rafale case.

Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for Ms. Lekhi submitted before a Bench comprising of CJI Ranjan Gogoi and JusticeSanjiv Khanna that Mr. Gandhi deliberately misinterpreted the judgment passed by the apex court and gave it a coloured interpretation in order to personally attack Mr. Modi.

The Bench will hear the plea on April 15, 2019.
