The judgment redoubles Congress’ resolve to pursue the matter further, the party today said after the Gujarat High Court refused to stay Rahul Gandhi’s conviction in a defamation case. Congress’ general secretary Jairam Ramesh said the reasoning of judge is being studied and the matter will be taken up further.

We have noted the verdict of single-Judge Bench of Gujarat High Court on the disqualification of Rahul Gandhi. The reasoning of Hon’ble Judge is being studied, as it should be and Dr Abhishek Singhvi will be briefing the media in detail at 3 P.M.

The judgement only redoubles our resolve to pursue the matter further, Ramesh said on Twitter. The Gujarat High Court on Friday dismissed Gandhi’s plea seeking a stay on his conviction in a criminal defamation case over his “Modi surname” remark.

Congress’ general secretary Randeep Surjewala termed it a Travesty of justice.

“Instead of punishing ‘Bank Fraudsters’ like Nirav Modi, Ami Modi, Neeshal Modi, Mehul Choksi and ilk, the ‘messenger’ exposing the deceit and swindling of public money is being punished,” Surjewala said in a tweet.

Surjewala said Rahul Gandhi has chosen the path of truth, of righteousness, of fearlessness and of seeking accountability from those in citadels of power.

We will tread upon the path of truth and righteousness, come what may… Satyamev Jayate ! the Congress leader said.

While dismissing the plea, Justice Hemant Prachchhak noted that Rahul Gandhi is already facing 10 cases across India, adding the order of lower court was just, proper and legal in convicting the Congress leader.
