‘Will continue to avail all options…’: Cong on Rahul defamation case


Share post:


New Delhi: The Congress on Thursday said it will continue to avail all the options available under the law in connection with the defamation case of its former party president Rahul Gandhi.

“We will continue to avail all options still available to us under the law,” said Congress general secretary in-charge Communications Jairam Ramesh in an apparent reference to the former party chief defamation case.

The statement of the Congress MP comes amid reports that a court in Gujarat’s Surat dismissed Rahul Gandhi’s plea seeking stay on his conviction in the defamation case.

Last month, the Congress leader was convicted in a defamation case by Surat court for his alleged “all thieves have Modi surname” remarks at a rally in Karnataka’s Kolar in 2019.

The court had sentenced him to two years in jail.

Later, he was disqualified from Lok Sabha as a member following his conviction by the court.

The Congress had termed the judgement “erroneous”.
