  1. Union Minister for Human Resource Development Smriti Irani on Friday slammed Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for his comment AND ADDED if the “Judiciary doesn’t kneel before the Gandhi family, parliament won’t be allowed to function”.

    Rahul Gandhi did not say a single world against the judiciary. He only said that the PMO is misusing the JUDICIAL PROCESS and the INVESTIGATING AGENCY.

    When asked who is threatening the judiciary, he said that the Modi Government is doing it and said Finance Minister of Modi’s cabinet, Arun Jaitley, had condemned the Supreme Court by saying that the Supreme Court Judgement setting aside the Constitution Amendment law for Appointment to the higher judiciary, saying that it is the “tyranny by the un-elected” and even compared the Supreme Court to the “Gymkhana Club”!

    RSS has scant respect for the judiciary, as it was amply made clear by betraying the undertaking given by it to the Supreme Court that it would do just “Kar Seva” in Ayodhya in 1992, and then it demolished the disputed structure with contempt of the Supreme Court.
