The Supreme Court asked Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi to either apologise or face trial for his defamatory remarks against the Rashtriya Swayam sevak Sangh on Tuesday 19th July.
“If you won’t apologise, you will have to face trial,” the court said pulling up the Congress leader for his remarks.
A bench of Justices Dipak Misra and R F Nariman refused Rahul’s request for two-week adjournment and posted the matter for hearing on July 27.
RSS activist Rajesh Kunte had alleged that Rahul in an election rally at Sonale said that “RSS people killed Gandhiji”.
Rahul Gandhi had moved the Supreme Court in May 2015 for quashing the criminal case lodged against him for his comments against the RSS during a Thane rally in March 2014.”RSS people killed Gandhiji and today their people (BJP) talk of him…They opposed Sardar Patel and Gandhiji,” Rahul had said while addressing a public rally in Thane district in March 2014.
