Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee castigated senior BJP leader L K Advani for quoting a Supreme Court order on blackmoney, saying the apex court was yet to pass final verdict on the issue relating to it.
Replying to the debate, Mukherjee said he was “disturbed” that the former deputy prime minister referred to a Supreme Court judgment. This judgment is not yet complete. Our department has challenged it... The judicial process is incomplete and we are discussing it. I would have ignored, if anybody else had said it. But it has come from former deputy prime minister."
Advani later said he was aware that the final verdict in the case was pending and had quoted only one order, which was also referred to by Congress MP Manish Tewari.
