New Delhi, July 9: Rahul Gandhi has been summoned by an Ahmedabad court, asking him to be present before it on August 9 in connection with a defamation case filed against him over his reported remark against MHA Amit Shah, in an election rally, back in the month of April.
While striving to win the mass appeal during the Lok Sabha elections, Gandhi had allegedly called Amit Shah a murder accused in an election rally at Madhya Pradesh. "Murder accused BJP chief Amit Shah. Wah, kya shaan hai!,” he had reportedly said.
The remark prompted a strong rebuttal from Amit Shah, who questioned the Rahul Gandhi's legal knowledge and said that the fake charge was dismissed as politically motivated by the court long ago.
"Let me tell you the gist of the order. I was slapped with a fake case and the court has already passed its order that it was a politically motivated allegation and was without any evidence. I don't want to make any comment on the legal knowledge of Rahul Gandhi," Amit Shah said.
Rahul Gandhi had earlier appeared before a Mumbai court in connection with a defamation case filed by an RSS worker against him for allegedly linking journalist Gauri Lankesh's killing with the BJP-RSS ideology.
