Addressing Lalit Modi and Nirav Modi who have been declared fugitives, Rahul Gandhi made the comment.
Gujarat: Rahul Gandhi has got a big relief from the Supreme Court in the defamation case. The Supreme Court has stayed Rahul Gandhi’s sentence in the Modi surname case. It has been said that, in the year 2019 the session court of Surat sentenced Rahul Gandhi to a two-year sentence for his statement regarding the surname Modi, against which he also appealed in the Gujarat High Court. However, the High Court also dismissed his appeal. After that, Rahul Gandhi had to knock on the door of the Supreme Court.
The big question was whether or not Rahul Gandhi will appear in the Parliament again now that the sentence is suspended. In response, Rahul Gandhi’s lawyer told the media as soon as he left the court that, Rahul Gandhi’s membership of Parliament has also been confirmed. So after the order of the Supreme, now Rahul Gandhi will appear in the Parliament once again. Once again Rahul Gandhi has regained his MP position as MP.
According to the rules, any political person sentenced to two years or more can have his political membership revoked. According to that rule, Rahul Gandhi’s membership was withdrawn from the Lok Sabha by the Speaker of the Lok Sabha, because Rahul was sentenced to two years by the Sessions Court of Surat in the defamation case. Which was also upheld by the Gujarat High Court. After that, the Supreme Court stayed the sentence today. Due to which Rahul’s political future seems to be secure now.
In the year 2019, during the Lok Sabha election campaign, Rahul Gandhi made a comment addressing Modi’s surname. Rahul Gandhi made the comment quoting Lalit Modi and Nirav Modi in a meeting of South India. After that, Surat BJP MLA Purnesh Modi filed a defamation case against Rahul Gandhi claiming that, Modi society had been insulted, which was sentenced to two years by the Surat Sessions Court.
