Rahul regrets attributing ‘chor’ remarks to SC Apr 23, 2019 0 413 12345 IANSNew DelhiExplaining his remarks on the Rafale deal, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday expressed regret for attributing his “Chowkidar Chor Hai” remarks to the top court and said he has incorrectly done so in the “heat of the moment”.Gandhi also said that his comment was deliberately used by his political opponents to gain leverage. “It has been used (and misused) by my political opponents to project that I had deliberately and intentionally suggested that this court had said Chowkidar Chor Hai! “Nothing could be farther from my mind. It is also clear that no court would ever do that and hence the unfortunate references (for which I express regret) to the court order and to the political slogan in juxtaposition the same breath in the heat of political campaigning ought not to be construed as suggesting that the court had given any finding or conclusion on that issue,” Gandhi said in his response submitted in the court.
