'Queen' is not above the law: Arun Jaitley

News

New Delhi: Dec 10;In a sharp dig at Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said India has never accepted that the 'queen' is not answerable to the law and asked her and Rahul Gandhi to contest the issue in courts instead of disrupting Parliament. Rejecting the Congress charge of political vendetta being pursued by the government, he said the Government has "so far not taken any punitive action".

Posting his comments on Facebook, Jaitley was apparently referring to the Congress plea against summons issued to Sonia, her son Rahul Gandhi and others, which was dismissed by Delhi High Court. The Congress later changed tact and submitted to the trial court that they were ready to appear.
