In a recent development, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has been summoned by the MP-MLA Court on January 6th. The court issued the summons in relation to a case where Gandhi has been accused of making objectionable remarks against Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
The case, which was filed on August 4th, 2018 by Bharatiya Janata Party leader Vijay Mishra, alleges that Rahul Gandhi made derogatory statements targeting Amit Shah. Mishra’s advocate, Santosh Pandey, stated that the MP-MLA court of Sultanpur had initially summoned Gandhi on December 16th, but he failed to appear.
According to reports, the court had previously directed Rahul Gandhi to appear on Saturday, but he did not comply with the order.
The legal proceedings have been ongoing, with the court reserving its verdict after hearing arguments. The next hearing was scheduled for November 27th, and Gandhi was summoned to appear on December 16th. However, he did not show up for the proceedings.
Vijay Mishra, a former chairman of a cooperative bank and a resident of Hanumanganj, has been pursuing this case against Rahul Gandhi. The summons issued for January 6th demonstrates the seriousness of the matter and the necessity for Gandhi’s presence in court.
