NEW DELHI, May 8 - Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday tendered unconditional apology in the Supreme Court for wrongfully attributing his �chowkidar chor hai� remark against Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the apex court in the Rafale verdict.

Gandhi, who filed an additional affidavit, said he holds the apex court in the �highest esteem and respect� and any attributions to it were �entirely unintentional, non-wilful and inadvertent�.

He also urged the top court to close the criminal contempt proceedings initiated on a petition filed by BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi, who alleged that Gandhi attributed the personal remarks to the apex court and tried to create prejudice.

The three-page affidavit was filed by the Congress president after he had drawn flak from the apex court on April 30 over his earlier affidavit in which he had not directly admitted his mistake for incorrectly attributing the allegedly contemptuous remark to the top court.

�The deponent (Rahul Gandhi) unconditionally

apologises for the wrongful attributions to this court. The deponent further states that any such attributions were entirely unintentional, non-wilful and inadvertent,� Gandhi said in his fresh affidavit filed in the apex court.

�The deponent (Gandhi) most respectfully prays that this court may be graciously pleased to accept the instant affidavit and close the present contempt proceedings,� he stated in the affidavit.

Lekhi has filed the contempt plea against Gandhi for the �chowkidar chor hai� remarks against Modi, which the top court had said were incorrectly attributed to it.

In his fresh affidavit, Gandhi said that he has never intended to, directly or indirectly, commit any act which interferes with the process of administration of justice.

�At the outset the deponent herein most respectfully submits that he holds this court in the highest esteem, and respect. The deponent has never sought or intended to, directly or indirectly, commit any act that it interferes with the process of administration of justice,� he said.

Gandhi also said that the affidavit is made �bona fide and in the interest of justice, and nothing material has been concealed therefrom�.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi is scheduled to hear Lekhi�s contempt plea against Gandhi on May 10 along with the review petitions in the Rafale deal case. � PTI
