CONGRESS VICE-PRESIDENT Rahul Gandhi was on Wednesday granted bail in a defamation case by a magistrate’s court in Bhiwandi. The case against Rahul was filed on a complaint by RSS member Rajesh Kunte in 2014.

In a speech during an election rally, Rahul had allegedly said that the organisation’s people were behind the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi.

Kunte’s lawyer Nandu Phadke told the court that if Rahul was willing to accept his mistake, he was ready to withdraw the objection to the bail. There was no response to this submission from Rahul or his lawyers.

Rahul’s lawyers Narayan Iyer and Ashok Mundergi requested the court for a date in January citing his political commitments.

After the court proceedings, Rahul addressed a public meeting at Bhiwandi. He targeted the Centre on the demonetisation issue. “You won’t see any industrialist in queue with you at the banks. In the last two years, Narendra Modi has waived Rs 1,10,000 crore worth tax money of 15-20 industrialists who his government serves — I will not name them here, everyone knows who they are…,” he alleged.
