New Delhi: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday filed an affidavit in Supreme Court and expressed regret over his remarks related to the Rafale judgement.

Gandhi said that he made the statement in heat of campaigning and has been misused by political opponents.

The apex court on April 15 had directed Gandhi to give his explanation by April 22.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had made it clear that Gandhi's remarks, made in the media, on the Rafale verdict were incorrectly attributed to the apex court.

The top court had sought Gandhi's explanation on a petition filed by BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi, who has sought criminal contempt against the Congress president. The apex court is scheduled to hear the matter on Tuesday.
