Rahul Gandhi to appear in court in defamation case

Bengaluru: Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi arrived in Bengaluru  to appear in court in a defamation case. Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Deputy CM DK Shivakumar welcomed Rahul Gandhi at the Bengaluru International Airport. Karnataka BJP MLC Keshav Prasad had filed a defamation case against him.

These are the allegations against Rahul Gandhi. In this connection, Rahul Gandhi has to appear in court on Friday. Party workers have been instructed not to bring the party flag and not to raise slogans against the BJP in the court premises. Rahul Gandhi is accused of saying that the previous BJP government takes 40 percent commission in projects. He had spread propaganda by publishing advertisements about this.

Keshav Prasad argued that during the assembly elections held last year, Siddaramaiah and Shivakumar made false allegations to mislead the people, for which action should be taken against them under Section 500 of the IPC. CM Siddaramaiah and Shivakumar appeared in court on June 1 and got bail.

Rahul Gandhi is also a party in this case. He was absent last time. After this, the BJP leader’s lawyer demanded that a non-bailable arrest warrant be issued against him. After the court proceedings, Rahul Gandhi will hold a meeting with the newly elected Congress MPs of the state as well as the defeated candidates at Bharat Jodo Bhavan here.
