Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the Congress, has been ordered to appear before the MP-MLA Court in Patna on April 12 due to his comment regarding the “Modi surname.” In a defamation case involving the same topic, Rahul Gandhi was already found guilty and given a two-year prison sentence by a Surat Court.
After being adjudicated guilty of the Surat charge, he was expelled from the Lok Sabha. The BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi in Bihar has this time filed a plea. In response to Gandhi’s comments disparaging others with the surname, Modi has accused him of criminal defamation.
During the Karnataka Lok Sabha election campaign in 2019, Rahul Gandhi claimed that everyone with the surname Modi is a thief. Furthermore, he said that Nirav Modi and Lalit Modi had stolen thousands of crores of rupees and left the nation.
In addition to Sushil Kumar, other witnesses who have testified in court include former road construction minister Nitin Navin, Bankipur, MLA Sanjiv Chaurasia, BJP leader Manish Kumar, and BJYM leader Manish Kumar.
As a result, he was disqualified from serving in Parliament as a representative for Kerala’s Wayanad constituency. Gandhi could not immediately appeal to the Supreme Court or High Court because his conviction was obtained through a criminal proceeding.
A third party, on the other hand, can approach the higher judiciary to request intervention because the Surat court’s decision was made in a way that was detrimental to the broader public interest.
