first_imgRahul Gandhi.Twitter/@INCIndiaThe Supreme Court on Tuesday pulled up Congress president Rahul Gandhi even after he apologised for incorrectly attributing to the top court his “chowkidar chor hai” remark. The apex court, however, allowed him to file a new affidavit by Monday.The move came after Gandhi’s counsel told the court that his client will apologise for attributing the remark to the top courtThe apex court said it will be the third opportunity granted to the Congress President.Gandhi’s counsel Abhishek Manu Singhvi offered the apology on behalf of his client a day after the Congress President filed a reply to the apex court’s notice on the issue, in which he had only expressed regret for the comments.In his affidavit, Gandhi said he had made the remark in the “heat of campaigning” and that his comment was not meant to scandalise the court in any manner.The top court had last week issued a notice to him asking him to explain his comment.Singhvi told the apex bench: “There were three errors on my part and I sincerely apologise. I say sorry for attributing the ‘Chowkidar’ comment to the SupremeCourt.”The bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said: “Where have you said all this in your affidavit?”The court observed that the contents of the affidavit filed by the Congress President was contradictory on separate pages in the affidavit.The court said: “You have contradicted yourself in the affidavit. At one place, you admit your statement but on the other, you deny saying it. If you start arguing on the basis of this affidavit, we won’t give you another opportunity to file a better affidavit.”To which, Singhvi said: “I’ve checked in the dictionary. ‘Regret’ means an ‘apology’.”Mukul Rohatgi appearing for BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi said: “He claims to be a literate person. But in the affidavit, he said: I didn’t read or analyse the order when I made this comment. Three hours later, he repeats it at a different rally. What kind of regret is he talking about?”Giving Gandhi the third chance, the bench said it should not, however, be viewed as an acknowledgement of past affidavits.The court will consider the admissibility of the new affidavit on May 6.last_img read more

The former Mayor of London hopeful currently holds a majority of more than 23,000 over the Liberal Democrats.But Goldsmith could split the Tory vote if he ran as an independent candidate.[The by-election] is clearly going to be a national issue around airport expansion, the whole country is going to be focused on it, Bartley said.There needs to be a party there which says very, very clearly: no Heathrow expansion, but not Gatwick expansion either.We need to be taking our climate change commitments very, very seriously.The Richmond Park vote would follow the Witney and West Oxfordshire by-election, which saw the Conservative majority slashed from more than 25,000 to just over 5,700.The government, meanwhile, is expected to launch a public consultation on a third runway at Heathrow ahead of a parliamentary vote in the winter of 2017/18.The SNP backs a third runway at Heathrow, while Jeremy Corbyn is expected to give Labour MPs a free vote on the issue.Labours Mayor of London Sadiq Khan is opposed to the move as well as the Liberal Democrats.Read more: Boris bulldozer-blocker Johnsons changing language on Heathrow Airport expansion IBTimes VideoRelated VideosMore videos Play VideoPlayMute0:00/0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVE0:00?Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedSubtitlessubtitles settings, opens subtitles settings dialogsubtitles off, selectedAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported.Beginning of dialog window.
