New Delhi – Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal expressed disagreement with the Gujarat court’s decision on Rahul Gandhi’s conviction in a criminal defamation case. While paying respect to the court, he said that the sentence is part of a larger conspiracy to weaken non-BJP leaders and parties.
Kejriwal tweeted, ‘There is a conspiracy to eliminate non-BJP leaders and parties by prosecuting them. We have differences with the Congress, but it is not right to implicate Rahul Gandhi in such a defamation case. Asking questions is the job of the public and the opposition. We respect the court but disagree with the judgement.”
Congress leader Jairam Ramesh reiterated Kejriwal’s concerns in his tweet and said, “This is new India. If you raise your voice against injustice, ED-CBI, police, FIR will be imposed on all.”
Ramesh further emphasized Gandhi’s right to appeal, saying, “Rahul Gandhi ji is getting punished for speaking the truth, for raising his voice against the dictator. The law of the country gives Rahul Gandhi an opportunity to appeal, he Will exercise this right. We are not worried.”
