New Delhi, 24th March 2023: Following Rahul Gandhi’s conviction in the criminal defamation case involving his remark about the “Modi surname,” Rahul Gandhi, Congress MP from Wayanad, Kerala, is disqualified as a Member of Lok Sabha.

The Lok Sabha Secretariat letter reads, ” Consequent upon his conviction by the Court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Surat in C.C./18712/2019, Shri Rahul Gandhi, Member of Lok Sabha representing the Wayanad Parliamentary Constituency of Kerala stands disqualified from the membership of Lok Sabha from the date of his conviction i.e. 23 March 2023 in terms of the provisions of Article 102(1)(e) of the Constitution of India read with Section 8 of the Representation of the People Act, 1951.”

Congress Gen Secy in-charge Communications Jairam Ramesh tweeted, “We will fight this battle both legally & politically. We will not be intimidated or silenced. Instead of a JPC into the PM-linked Adani MahaMegaScam, Rahul Gandhi stands disqualified. Indian Democracy Om Shanti.”

BJP MP Vinod Sonkar said, “This is a Court order, everyone should accept it. The Court convicted him. The manner in which he insulted a community at the time of the elections…this has sent out a good message across the country.”
