Rahul Gandhi will not be able to contest LS polls

The Gujarat High Court held that the order of conviction passed by the trial court was proper. There is no need to interfere with this order. Hence your application is rejected. Along with this, the High Court further said that at least ten criminal cases against Rahul Gandhi are pending in the court. The High Court has upheld the decision of the Sessions Court, due to which now Rahul Gandhi will not be able to fulfill his intention of contesting the Lok Sabha elections. 

The Lok Sabha membership of Rahul Gandhi has already gone. The Sessions Court had disqualified Rahul from the membership of the Lok Sabha after his conviction. After being disqualified from the membership of the Lok Sabha, Rahul Gandhi alleged in Wayanad, Kerala that the Central government was working to suppress his voice. But hs is not afraid.

What have Congress and BJP been saying?

Abhishek Manu Singhvi appeared on behalf of Rahul Gandhi in the Gujarat High Court. He had said during the last hearing that there are many people including Modh and Teli who write Modi surname in Gujarat. It is wrong to link Rahul's statement with everyone. The statement of the petitioner that 13 crore people of the country have been defamed is itself a joke. On the matter, BJP President JP Nadda and other party leaders had claimed that Rahul Gandhi had insulted the OBCs. In such a situation, he should apologize to the OBC society.

What did Rahul Gandhi say

Regarding this, BJP leader Purnesh Modi had filed a defamation case against him in Surat court. He had said that by saying this, Rahul Gandhi has defamed the people of Modi surname.
