In a major setback to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, the Gujarat High Court rejected his plea for an interim stay against conviction in connection with the Modi surname defamation case. This result has affected Congress party adversely as Gandhi will not be able to contest elections or seek revocation of the suspension of his status as a Member of Parliament (MP). However, he can appeal the High Court order in Supreme Court.

Gujarat High Court during the hearing stated that the Trial Court conviction order is proper and there is no need to interfere with the said order. Therefore, the application is dismissed. The Court further noted that at least 10 criminal cases are pending against Rahul Gandhi.

Earlier in May, Justice Prachchhak, while hearing Gandhi’s plea, had refused to grant any interim relief saying it will pass a final order after the summer vacation, which ended three weeks back.
