“Rahul Gandhi had insulted the judiciary and lowered its dignity”, says Lawyer Vineet Jindal


A lawyer request to take legal action against Rahul Gandhi for contempt has been denied by Attorney General KK Venugopal, who says his statements on the judiciary are “too vague” to lower the dignity of the institution in the eyes of people.
Lawyer Vineet Jundal had written to Mr. Venugopal for consent to initiate a contempt of court case in the supreme court against the Congress MP for his remarks in a recent interview.
Mr. Rahul Gandhi was quoted as saying “This country has a legal system where one had 100 percent freedom to express their opinion. It is very clear that the BJP is inserting it’s people in all these institutions of the country,”
Vineet Jindal wrote that the Congress leader had insulted the judiciary and lowered its dignity with these comments.
The top government lawyer however, disagreed, saying Mr. Gandhi had made a “general” statement on the judiciary referred to the supreme court or judges.
The Attorney General added by saying “The question of my granting consent would not arise. In any event, I am of the opinion that the statements in question are too vague to be said to have lowered the authority of the institution in the eyes of the public”.
