BJP leader and Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad claimed the order agrees with the contention that how Congress president Rahul Gandhi, his mother Sonia Gandhi and their family members misused public properties.

The publisher had approached the high court on November 12 challenging the October 30 order of the Urban Development Ministry, ending its 56-year-old lease and asking it to vacate the premises in the press enclave at ITO here by November 15.
Delhi High Court said there is no urgency in the plea of Associated Journals Ltd (AJL), publisher of the National Herald newspaper, against the Centre's order asking it to vacate its premises at ITO in Delhi.
Swamy was responding to Congress leader Motilal Vora's application seeking the court's order to restrain him from tweeting about the case in which Vora is an accused along with his party chief Rahul Gandhi and mother Sonia Gandhi.
The Income Tax Department had contended that Rahul Gandhi's tax assessment for 2011-12 was reopened as material facts were concealed.

Gandhi's lawyers had urged the bench to order that confidentiality be maintained regarding the contents of the petition and the reporting of the matter should only be confined to the arguments in the court.
The court directed that the I-T department documents submitted by Swamy be kept in a sealed cover till further orders.
