After reviewing the petitions filed against its 2018 order, the Supreme Court‘s Rafale verdict is expected to come in today. The court will also hear a defamation case on Rahul Gandhi.

The Supreme court of India will review and give a final verdict on the petitions filed on the Rafale case. In 2018, a government to government deal was made with France bringing one of the fighter jets in India. India also ordered for 36 other fighter jets. However, before rest of the jets are brought to India SC will make a final decision on the petitions filed against its 2018 order. In the previous order, all the petitions seeking an investigation into the alleged irregularities in the Rs. 58,000 crore deal was dismissed by the court. This order gave the Narendra Modi government a clean chit in its deal with French firm Dassault Aviation. However, post the petitions being raised, Supreme Court’s Rafale verdict is expected to come in on Thursday, 14th November after reconsideration.

The petitions were filed by former Union ministers Yashwant Sinha, Arun Shourie and activist lawyer Prashant Bhushan, seeking a re-examination of its findings in the procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets. This petition will be reviewed by a three-judge panel headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi along with Justices SK Kaul and KM Joseph. Along with the Rafale verdict, the court will also give its verdict on the misconduct of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi who had made the “chowkidaar chor hai” remark against PM Narendra Modi and wrongly attributed it to the Supreme Court.
