One more defamation case has been registered against former MP and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. This time over his remark against the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) during his Bharat Jodo Yatra in January, this year.
The case was registered by advocate Arun Bhadauria on the complaint of an RSS worker, Kamal Bhadauria, at Haridwar court in Uttarakhand.
Addressing a street-corner meeting after the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Ambala, Haryana, on January 9, 2023, Rahul Gandhi said RSS members are the "21st-century Kauravas".
"Who were the Kauravas? I will first tell you about the 21st-century Kauravas. They wear khakhi half-pants, carry lathi in hand and hold shakhas; India's 2-3 billionaires are standing with the Kauravas," said Rahul, alluding to the RSS.
The matter will be heard in court on April 12.
