Patna court grants bail to Rahul Gandhi in a defamation case filed by Sushil Kumar Modi over “all Modis are thieves” remark

"I have a question. Why do all the thieves have Modi in their names whether be it Nirav Modi, Lalit Modi, and Narendra Modi? We don't know how many more such Modis will come out", Rahul Gandhi had said at a rally in Kolar.

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi was granted bail today by a Patna court in connection with a defamation case filed by Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi.

Modi had filed the case in the month of April in the court of the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) against Gandhi’s casteist and insensitive remarks made during an election rally in Karnataka’s Kolar district wherein he had insinuated that all thieves have Modi in their surnames.

“I have a question. Why do all the thieves have Modi in their names whether be it Nirav Modi, Lalit Modi, and Narendra Modi? We don’t know how many more such Modis will come out”, Gandhi had said.

The case was referred by CJM Shashikant Roy to ACJM Kumar Gunjan. Gandhi who recently submitted his resignation as the President of Congress party took a dig at the Prime Minister and said that anyone who raises a voice against the PM Modi’s government, the BJP, and the RSS, is slapped with court cases. “Whoever stands against RSS’ and Narendra Modi Ji’s ideology is attacked, court cases are slapped. My fight is to save the Constitution, to stand for the poor and the farmers”, he said.

Gandhi was accompanied to the court by senior Congress leaders from Bihar and the State in-charge of the party Shashikant Gohil. A number of Congress workers had reportedly gathered outside the Patna court demanding the withdrawal of Rahul Gandhi’s resignation.

Rahul Gandhi is reportedly on a court appearance spree. Earlier this week, he had appeared at a court in Mazgaon. On July 9, he is scheduled to appear in a court in Ahmedabad in another defamation case over his statements.
