Jharkhand HC to hear Rahul Gandhi’s plea on remarks against Amit Shah on May 16

Ranchi: The Jharkhand High Court will hear the petition involving former Congress national president and ex-MP Rahul Gandhi’s derogatory remarks against Union home minister and former BJP national president Amit Shah on May 16. 

Gandhi had filed the petition for relief after the lower court in Jharkhand capital took cognizance of the matter and sent notice to Gandhi’ who recently lost his Lok Sabha membership due to his uncontrolled tongue.

Advocate Vinod Sahu, appearing on behalf of the complainant Naveen Jha who filed the complaint against Gandhi in the lower court, informed this saying that the case was expected to be heard today but the hearing was deferred. Sahu said the case involves Rahul’s statement ‘Congress BJP Ki Tarah Hatyare Ko Party Adhyaksh Ke Roop Mein Swikar Nahi Kar Sakti’. 

He who has been sentenced to two years imprisonment by a lower court in Surat in Gujarat for defamatory statements against the Modi community during the election campaign in 2019 is facing three cases of similar nature in Jharkhand also. While one case is pending at a Chaibasa court, two cases are pending at a lower court in Ranchi.

In Chaibasa, a case was filed by a BJP worker Pratap Katiyar for his defamatory statement during a party convention saying ‘Congress BJP Ki Tarah Hatyare Ko Party Adhyaksh Ke Roop Mein Swikar Nahi Kar Sakti’. In Ranchi, two cases are filed.

One case has been filed by advocate Pradeep Modi for Rahul’s defamatory statement saying ‘Sare Modi Chor’ and another is filed by a BJP worker Naveen Jha for the same defamatory statement for which the case was filed in Chaibasa.
