The Supreme Court will on Thursday deliver its verdict a bunch of cases including review petitions filed against its rulings on the entry of women in Sabarimala temple and the Rafale fighter jet deal.
The apex court will also decide on a contempt petition against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over his ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ remark. Gandhi, as then Congress president, had attacked the government over the Rafale deal but ran into trouble when a statement of his seemed to have attributed the slogan “Chowkidar Chor Hai” to the Supreme Court.
