Congress President Rahul Gandhi today hit out at Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad over huge pendency of cases in the courts and shortage of judges and charged him with “peddling fake news” instead.

Supreme Court 55,000+,
High Court 37 Lakh+,
Lower Courts 2.6 Crore+.
Yet, a staggering 400 High Court and
6,000 Lower Court judges not appointed,
while Law Minister preoccupied peddling fake news, Gandhi said on Twitter, using the hashtag JudiciaryDemonetised .
The Congress and the BJP have been engaged in a slinging match between each other accusing the other of using the services of the controversial data firm.
Prasad recently insisted that the Congress has used the services of Cambridge Analytica and said several media reports about the opposition party using the services of the firm had appeared in October and November last year and it never denied those stories till the BJP raised the issue.
