Congress leader Rahul Gandhi To Visit Wayanad Tomorrow, his previous electoral district in Kerala
Following his conviction and sentencing in a criminal defamation case in Surat in 2019, Gandhi was expelled from the Lower House of Parliament.
Wayanad visit by Rahul Gandhi
On Tuesday, Congressman Rahul Gandhi will make his first trip back to his former Kerala district of Wayanad since being removed from the House of Representatives (MP).
He will conduct a roadshow and speak at a public gathering in Wayanad during his stay.
Rahul Gandhi expelled from Parliament
After being found guilty and given a sentence in a criminal defamation case in Surat in 2019, Rahul Gandhi was expelled from the Lower House of Parliament. A comment he made while speaking at a campaign event before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, using the surname “Modi,” was the subject of the case.
Rahul poked fun at Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2019 at a public rally in Kolar, Karnataka, by asking, “How come all the robbers have Modi as a similar surname? ”
Rahul was declared ineligible to serve as a member of parliament on March 24 following his conviction, per a 2013 decision by the Supreme Court. According to the decision, any MP or MLA who is found guilty and given a sentence of two years or longer will be automatically disqualified.
Recent Controversial Statement of Rahul Gandhi
Meanwhile, the Congressman sparked fresh dispute on Saturday when he posted a critical tweet containing the names of businessman Gautam Adani and erstwhile Congressmen who had either joined the BJP or amputated lengthy relations with the glorious old party.
Himanta Biswa Sarma, the chief minister of Assam, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Anil Antony, and former chief minister Kiran Reddy were among the people whose names were displayed in the image.
The Reaction of BJP Leaders to That Statement
Himanta Biswa Sarma, the chief minister of Assam, responded by announcing that he would sue Rahul Gandhi, the president of the Congress, for defamation because Gandhi had linked the Adani Group in a tweet.
“Anything Rahul Gandhi has commented is misleading. Therefore, once the prime minister returns from Assam, we will respond to the tweet, and undoubtedly, a defamation case will be filed in Guwahati,” the official said.
Following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the province on April 14, according to Sarma, a defamation lawsuit would be filed.
“At this point, I don’t want to respond. When the visit of the Prime Minister to Assam comes to an end, I will submit the defamation lawsuit,” Sarma told the news agency.
Rahul Gandhi & Wayanad
Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the Congress, will make his first trip back to Kerala’s Wayanad on April 11 since being removed from the House of Representatives.
Then, in the 2019 Lok Sabha election, Rahul Gandhi, the president of the Congress, ran for two seats. He won one of them, Wayanad, but lost the other, Amethi, which he had been accomplishing since 2004.
