New Delhi. According to big news right now, Rahul Gandhi now has a big hit in the ‘Modi surname’ libel case. In fact, now his membership in parliament has been cancelled. Significantly, a Surat court had convicted Rahul Gandhi in the ‘defamation’ case. He too was sentenced to two years in this case. However, he was later granted bail. Since this decision, clouds of danger have hung over his membership in parliament. Note that Rahul Gandhi was elected an MP for Wayanad in Kerala.

At the same time, in the notification issued by the Lok Sabha Secretariat, it has been said that his disqualification order will be effective from March 23. The notification states that he (Rahul Gandhi) has been disqualified under Article 102(1) of the Constitution and Section 8 of the Representation of the People Act, 1951.

Significantly, a Surat court on Thursday sentenced Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to two years in prison in a 2019 criminal libel case brought against him for his comment about the “surname Modi.” However, the court granted Gandhi bail and stayed the execution of his sentence for 30 days, so that Congress leaders could challenge the verdict.
