‘Petition against Rahul Gandhi’s sentence in a day or two’

A petition challenging the conviction and sentence of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi by a trial court in Surat in a defamation case is ready and likely to be filed very soon. Sources gave this information on Wednesday.

He said the party’s top legal advisors are working on the review petition, which will be filed in the Surat sessions court in a day or two.

Gandhi was convicted in a 2019 defamation case for her remarks on the Modi surname and given a two-year sentence, following which she was disqualified as a Lok Sabha MP.
