Surat: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has been scheduled to appear until a magisterial court on Thursday to shield himself in a criminal defamation case filed against him saying”why all thieves share that the Modi surname” during the Lok Sabha poll effort this past year.
He told media persons that the former Congress president could look before the court on October 10.
“Rahulji will be resisted a grand welcome from our party employees on the whole course from the airport to the court,” Chavda stated.
In his complaintthe BJP legislator out of Surat-West had alleged that the Congress leader had defamed the full Modi community along with his comment”how come thieves have Modi as ordinary surname”, made throughout the Lok Sabha campaign.
The court, while acknowledging the lawsuit, had held that there has been a prima facie case of criminal defamation against the Lok Sabha MP in Wayanad.
How come all burglars have Modi as ordinary surname?”
In his criticism, Purnesh Modi had stated that the Congress leader had defamed the total Modi community together with his own statement.
Gandhi is also facing two other defamation lawsuits in Ahmedabad for calling Union Home Minister Amit Shah that a”murder accused” and another for asserting that Ahmedabad District Cooperative Bank, where Shah is a director, was included in an”scam” scrapped money notes with face value of Rs 750 crore were exchanged using legitimate bills over five years of demonetisation in 2016.
Even though the next date of hearing in these two cases is October 11, attorneys claimed Gandhi’s appearance in Ahmedabad courts may not be needed in this juncture.
