SURAT, April 20, 2023 (TBINN)

A court in Gujarat’s Surat City today rejected Congress’ leader Rahul Gandhi’s application for a stay on his conviction in a criminal defamation case over his Modi surname remark.

The court of Additional Sessions Judge R.P. Mogera rejected Gandhi’s application filed for a relief pending his appeal against a lower court’s order sentencing him to two years in jail in the case.

Notably, Rahul Gandhi on April 3, 2023 approached the Sessions Court for appeal against the lower court’s order.

A stay on conviction by the Sessions Court could have paved the way for Rahul Gandhi’s reinstatement as Member of Parliament.

Rahul Gandhi approached the Sessions Court for appeal after the Lower Court sentenced him to two years in jail while convicting him for criminal defamation over his remark that how come all thieves have Modi as the common surname? made during an election rally at Kolar in Karnataka on April 13, 2019.

Rahul’s lawyers filed two applications, one for a stay on the sentence (or bail till the disposal of his appeal) and another for stay on conviction till the disposal of his appeal. .
