Rahul to address event in Kolar, where he made ‘Modi’ surname remark

Amid the protests by the Congress against his disqualification from the Lok Sabha, Rahul Gandhi on April 5 will address a public meeting at Kolar in poll-bound Karnataka, the same place where he made the remark for which he was convicted of criminal defamation and stripped off his membership of the Lower House. A senior Congress member in Karnataka said the disqualified MP will return to Kolar for a campaign event on April 5. It was in Kolar that Rahul made the remark using the surname ‘Modi’ while headlining a campaign rally for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. A Surat court held him guilty of criminal defamation over this remark and sentenced him to 2 years’ imprinsionment.
