Amidst celebrations, RaGa arrives at AICC headquarters

New Delhi: After the Supreme Court stayed conviction in the ‘Modi surname’ remark case, AICC leader Rahul Gandhi arrived at the Congress headquarters amid celebrations.

He was accompanied by his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

Rahul Gandhi’s alleged remarks against the Modi community even led to his disqualification as Lok Sabha MP.

In the Supreme Court, a bench of Justices BR Gavai, PS Narasimha and PV Sanjay Kumar, which heard Gandhi’s plea challenging the Gujarat High Court order refusing to stay the conviction, noted that the trial court had not given reasons for giving the maximum punishment of two years to Rahul Gandhi.

“The Supreme Court judgment is a strong vindication of truth and justice. Despite the relentless efforts of the BJPs machinery, @RahulGandhi has refused to bend, break or bow, choosing instead to place his faith in the judicial process,” Jairam Ramesh said in a tweet.
