'Contempt case against Rahul Gandhi', Venugopal said this on demand of lawyer

New Delhi: Former Congress national president Rahul Gandhi has received great relief. Attorney General KK Venugopal has dismissed the demand of lawyer Vineet Jindal in who he had said that it should be allowed to initiate criminal contempt proceedings against Congress MP Rahul Gandhi. The consent of the Supreme Court or the Solicitor General is necessary for contempt proceedings under section 15 of the Contempt of Contempt act of the Apex Court and rule 3 of the rules.

In fact, lawyer Jindal had written a letter to Attorney General Venugopal urging him to allow criminal contempt proceedings against former Congress national president Rahul Gandhi. He said, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has made comments against the Indian judiciary and impairing its dignity.

However, Venugopal disagreed with Jindal's demand saying that Rahul Gandhi had made a "general" remark on the judiciary and did not specifically target the Supreme Court or judges. Venugopal said, "There is no question of giving my consent. In any event, I am of the opinion that the statements under consideration are inferior to the authority of the institution from the public point of view.
