Rahul in spotlight following SC's stay on his conviction
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is in the spotlight ever since the Supreme Court put a stay on his conviction on August 4. The Gujarat High Court had upheld Surat court's verdict that sentenced Rahul and convicted the Congress leader for two years in 'Modi surname' defamation case. The case is filed by BJP MLA Purnesh Modi, who filed a case on Rahul after the Congress leader in a rally in Karnataka in 2019 had remarked: "Why do all thieves have Modi surname?"
Rahul reinstated as MP
Rahul Gandhi's status as member of parliament was restored on Monday (August 7), after the Supreme Court put a stay on his conviction on Friday (August 4). Rahul visited the Parliament on Monday itself as the INDIA (Indian National Developmental Alliance) MPs welcomed him with great enthusiasm.
Rahul speaks during no-confidence motion in the house
On Wednesday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi spoke in the Lok Sabha for the first time after his disqualification was revoked. Rahul Gandhi came down heavily on BJP and PM Narendra Modi over the Manipur issue during his speech in the House. Rahul said that PM Modi had created and divided Manipur into two parts. He also added that "Bharat Mata" was killed in Manipur, saying that it was not just Manipur but all of India that was getting murdered.
However, controversy broke out after women BJP MPs alleged that Rahul Gandhi made the inappropriate gesture of blowing a flying kiss toward where Union Minister Smriti Irani was seated along with other BJP MPs. The NDA women MPs submitted a complaint letter to Lok Sabha speaker and demanded action against Rahul Gandhi saying that the MP had committed an act not befitting an MP.
