Ramesh tweeted, “Last night we received the order of Delhi High Court in Smriti Irani’s case. Court has asked us to reply in 4 weeks. We will definitely respond to each and every comment of the High Court order. Satyameva Jayate!’
The Delhi High Court had held that Union Minister Smriti Irani and her daughter neither owned a restaurant-cum-bar in Goa nor had they ever applied for a food and beverage license there. At the same time, the court had said that Congress leaders appear to have “malicious intentions” towards him. The High Court had held that even the show cause notice issued by the Goa government was not addressed to Irani or her family members. The court said that Congress leaders – Jairam Ramesh, Pawan Khera, Netta D’Souza – along with others hatched a conspiracy to make false, brash and aggressive personal attacks against them.

Significantly, the Congress had alleged that Irani’s daughter runs an illegal bar in Goa. Congress has accused Union Minister Smriti Irani’s daughter of running an illegal bar in Goa, saying Prime Minister Narendra Modi should sack Irani from his cabinet. Terming the Congress charge as malicious, Smriti Irani claimed that her daughter has been targeted because of her vocal stand on the Rs 5,000 crore loot of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi in the National Herald case.
Congress’s Media and Publicity Head Pawan Khera had told the media that there have been serious allegations of corruption against the family of Union Minister Smriti Irani. A restaurant run by his daughter in Goa has been accused of issuing fake licenses to serve liquor and this is not an allegation of ‘quoting sources’ or political vendetta by agencies, but of Right to Information (RTI). The information received under RTI has been disclosed.”
