Congress, which has challenged a Delhi High Court verdict holding it and BJP prima facie guilty of violating the law on foreign funding, on Tuesday sought time from the Supreme Court to clarify the effect of the amendment brought this year to the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act, 2010 in their matter.
“The counsel for petitioner has sought adjournment to seek instructions about the effect of amendment to the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act in their matter. The prayer is allowed,” a bench headed by Justice JS Khehar said.
The bench, also comprising Justices Arun Mishra and A M Khanwilkar, fixed the matter for hearing on November 29 after senior advocate Mohan Parasaran, representing Congress, said he would argue the matter after seeking instructions.
