‘Chowkidar chor hai’ bubble bursts, Rahul Gandhi tells SC that he attributed statement to Rafale judgement in ‘heat of campaigning’

Earlier, responding to sexual harassment allegations that had been levelled against the Chief Justice of India, CJI Ranjan Gogoi had said that he was being pressurised to not preside over important cases that he was about to hear this week. The contempt petition against Rahul Gandhi was one of the cases.

Rahul Gandhi who has developed a penchant for lying and getting caught in the process has this time been caught in the Supreme Court for his lies, no less. Earlier, the Supreme Court, pursuant to a petition filed by BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi had sent Rahul Gandhi a criminal contempt notice for twisting the Supreme Court’s words and attributing ‘chowkidaar chor hai’ words to the Supreme Court’s decision in the Rafale case. In his response, Rahul Gandhi had said that he made the statement in the heat of election campaigning.

Rahul Gandhi has thus essentially retracted his statement where he said that the Supreme Court has admitted that “Chowkidaar ne chori ki hai” and, in an attempt to shield himself from criminal contempt, said that the statement was made in the heat of political campaigning.

Rahul Gandhi, while addressing the media, had said that Supreme Court has accepted that ‘Chokidar Chor Hai’.

Hearing the petition, CJI Ranjan Gogoi had said, “The views attributed to this court in the address made by Rahul Gandhi to the media and public has been incorrectly attributed to the court. Supreme Court at no occasion recorded any such views or made any such observations. What was decided by the court was legal admissibility of certain documents. We feel it proper to seek an explanation from Rahul Gandhi.”

Rahul Gandhi had distorted the SC order while talking to the media, and said that Supreme Court has accepted that there is some form of corruption in Rafale deal and that “chowkidaar ne chori karwayi hai”. The Supreme Court observed that it had on “no occasion” made any comments as attributed by Gandhi and that the judgment was solely on the legal question of admissibility of documents produced by review petitioners. The top court has asked Rahul Gandhi to reply by April 22.

According to a Republic TV translation, Rahul Gandhi has said:

“Now, let’s talk about Rafale row. A couple of days ago, an interview of Prime Minister was played on TV where he told the journalist that Court has given him a clean chit. Today, the Supreme Court had made it clearer that the Chowkidar has is involved in the theft (Chowkidaar ne chori ki hai). Supreme Court has accepted that there is corruption involved in the entire Rafale issue. And like I have been saying for ages now, if an investigation is undertaken on this matter, two names will surface: Narendra Modi and Anil Ambani. I have been saying for the past few months that the Prime Minister of India stole Air Force’s money and gave it to Anil Ambani, amount of 30,000 crores. The Supreme Court has taken cognisance of this and has called for an investigation. I have been challenging Mr Modi for a debate. Narendra Modi Ji the Supreme Court has said that you are indulged in corruption and you have supplied money to Anil Ambani. Come, let’s discuss corruption. The nation wants to know about Rafale matter, corruption and demonetisation. They already know about Amit Shah’s son. I am saying that the there was corruption involved in the Rafale deal and Modi Ji gave an amount of 30,000 crores to Anil Ambani. Chowkidar don’t want to debate with me. Supreme Court will do justice. Supreme Court said that Chowkidar is involved in a theft (Chowkidar ne chori ki hai)”.
