Following Rahul Gandhi’s conviction in a Modi defamation case, Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju stated on Thursday that whatever the former congressman says always has a negative impact on the party and the entire country.
Rijiju said outside parliament, “I’ll see the details of the order before I say anything.” Whatever Rahul Gandhi says, it always has a negative impact on the Congress party and the entire country.” In a criminal defamation case filed against him over his alleged ‘Modi surname’ remark, the Surat District Court sentenced Congress MP Rahul Gandhi to two years in prison on Thursday.
The court later granted him bail. Union Minister claimed that a handful of Congress MPs told him that the Congress party is suffering as a result of Rahul Gandhi’s attitude.
Earlier today, a Surat court found Congress leader Rahul Gandhi guilty in a 2019 criminal defamation case filed against him over his alleged ‘Modi surname’ remarks.
On a complaint filed by BJP MLA and former Gujarat minister Purnesh Modi, the Surat District Court issued its verdict in the case for his alleged “how come all the thieves have Modi as the common surname?” remarks.
