Rahul Gandhi slams Vasundhara Raje over controversial Rajasthan ordinance, says it is '2017, not 1817'

New Delhi: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi took a swipe at Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje over a controversial ordinance, pointing out that the year was "2017, not 1817".

He also tagged a news report entitled “Rajasthan ordinance is against free speech, say legal experts”.

The report said the ordinance prohibited an investigation without prior sanction against judicial officers and public servants and also restricted the media.

It said under the proposed law, the media cannot report on accusations against magistrates and others until the prosecution gets the go-ahead from the sanctioning authority.

The state government said in a release Saturday night there was no provision in the ordinance to protect corrupt officials.
