Rahul Gandhi to challenge his conviction in Surat court on Monday
On Monday the former MP and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will likely appeal against his sentence in a criminal defamation case in Surat court. The legal team has done all the preparation, sources have said. The Congress president termed the disqualification as “vengeance“.
Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Thursday said that a legal team was working on the case in which former Gandhi was convicted. Kharge said the party was ready to face the matter “politically and legally” and criticized the Central government for disqualifying Rahul Gandhi “in haste”.
Gandhi was convicted on March 23 in a defamation case for two years following which he was disqualified from the Lok Sabha.
As a mark of protest against the disqualification of Gandhi from the Lok Sabha, and to press its demand for a probe into the allegations of fraud levelled against the Adani Group, the Congress launched the ‘Jai Bharat Satyagraha’ across the country against the Centre.
