Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is all set to address the upcoming no-confidence motion against the Narendra Modi-led government in the Lok Sabha. 

This opportunity comes after the Supreme Court stayed his conviction in the 2019 'Modi surname' defamation case, resulting in the restoration of his MP status. The 53-year-old politician from Wayanad, Kerala, is likely to open the debate from the Congress side.

In March, Gandhi faced disqualification as an MP following a defamation case conviction. The case was based on his remark during an election rally in Karnataka Kolar, where he questioned the prevalence of the surname "Modi" among thieves. The conviction led to a two-year jail sentence, which automatically disqualified him as per the law.

However, the recent Supreme Court intervention paved the way for Gandhi's return to the Parliament. He promptly attended proceedings, receiving a warm welcome from fellow Congress members and opposition MPs. Celebrations erupted at the AICC headquarters in New Delhi, with party workers expressing their support for the Congress leader.

As he prepares to speak on the no-confidence motion, Gandhi's Twitter bio now proudly identifies him as a Member of Parliament and a member of the Indian National Congress. All eyes are now on his speech and the ensuing parliamentary debate as the political drama unfolds.
