Moily expressed the view that judges should not take upon themselves to punish a person who makes allegations against them.
Veerappa Moily said the Congress Working Committee will take a call on the matter after Gandhi insisted he would quit as the party chief.
Emphasising that Gandhi alone can lead the party, he said it is the AICC in-charges and chiefs of states, where the party has done badly, who should be held accountable and not the Congress president.
The Air Force chief had said "Rafale was badly needed" and the top court gave a "very fine judgment". He also called the Rafale deal a "game changer".
Ever since Sonia Gandhi stepped down as the Congress president, there was speculation whether Rahul Gandhi would assume charge of the UPA chairperson or she would continue in the position.
Asked if he expected Rahul to take over next month, Moily said, "Possibly yes".
