In the Supreme Court stayed the sentencing of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in a case of “defamation of Modi’s name,” paving the way for his possible reinstatement as MP for Wayanad. While Congress leaders and opposition parties celebrated the verdict, it does not mean that Rahul Gandhi has been acquitted of charges related to the Modi defamation case.
Looking at Rahul Gandhi:
comment case name modes:
In April 2019, during a rally in Kolar, Karnataka, Rahul Gandhi made a remark to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and wondered how he got the nickname “Modi” commonly used by all thieves.The comment led to Prashant Modi, a member of Gujarat’s Bharatiya Janata Party with no direct link to the PM, filing a defamation lawsuit against him.
Supreme Court ruling:
At the Supreme Court hearing, Justices B.R. Gavai, P.SNarasimha and Sanjay Kumar have expressed the opinion that public figures should be careful when speaking in public, especially when making sarcastic remarks. They also argued that the lower court in this case did not provide a compelling reason justifying the imposition of the maximum penalty. It is therefore necessary to suspend the execution of the judgment until the judgment is executed.
Can Rahul Gandhi stand for re-election?
Rahul Gandhi allowed to stand for re-election after his sentence was suspended by the Supreme Court.He asked the Supreme Court to have his two-year sentence suspended so that he could attend the current and subsequent sessions of Lok Sabha.
Rahul Gandhi, who had previously laid the foundation for his leadership with initiatives such as the Bharat Jodo Yatra, can now actively participate in the electoral process ahead of the crucial Lok Sabha elections in 2024.
Will Rahul Gandhi become MP again?
Rahul Gandhi can now return to Parliament as a Supreme Court ruling overturned his ban. However, the Lok Sabha Secretariat must issue a notice before you can join.
According to Rahul Gandhi’s lawyer, Abhishek’s chief lawyer Manu Singhvi has already missed two sessions of Parliament due to his disqualification by the Gujarat High Court. Singhvi stressed that this is Rahul Gandhi’s last chance to participate in Parliament and stand for election.
In summary, the Supreme Court ruling gives Rahul Gandhi the opportunity to become MP again and to participate in the next elections. However, this does not absolve him of the allegations related to the Modi defamation case.
