Rahul Gandhi defamation: Tamil Nadu CM MK Stalin says govt should withdraw action

The government has to withdraw the action taken against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, says Tamil Nadu CM and DMK president MK Stalin. "This intimidating tone of action appears to send a message across that even the leader of the national political party and MP does not have the democratic right to express his opinion."

An appeal is a fundamental right of anyone who is convicted and the judge had pointed this out in his judgment and gave 30 days' time for the Congress leader to respond, he said in a statement in Chennai.

"Disqualification of Rahul Gandhi by then is a deprivation of the democratic right of a MP. The Supreme Court had not upheld the 2-year imprisonment. The district Court had given only the verdict and there's an appeal in the High Court. The Supreme Court has to deliver the final verdict," he said.

"This shows the extent to which the BJP leadership is scared of Rahul Gandhi. This is due to the huge impact Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra had created among the people. The Centre is unable to reply to the issues raised by Gandhi in Parliament. They had disqualified him fearing that his continued presence in the Parliament would cause a political crisis for the BJP," Stalin claimed.

"I request all Indian political parties to realise that the action against Rahul Gandhi is an attack on progressive democratic forces and oppose it in unison," Stalin appealed.
