Taking to Twitter, Sarma shared the apex court order in this case.
He wrote: “The Supreme Court states – the utterances by Rahul Gandhi are not in good taste; a person in public life is expected to exercise a degree of restraint while making public speeches and he ought to have been more careful.
“The order has a clear reference to Rahul Gandhi’s 2019 contempt case in the Supreme Court underlining his credibility as a repeat offender,” he added.
The Assam Chief Minister further said: “The SC makes it clear that the stay will not influence the ongoing appeal process at the lower court.”
Earlier on Friday, Sarma criticised Rahul Gandhi and posted on Twitter: “Heights of duplicity! You abuse the judiciary when you get convicted, and when the same judiciary grants you bail, you say justice has prevailed.”
