Rahul Vs RSS: Rahul Gandhi Appears In Bhiwandi Court In Defamation Case

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Monday appeared in a Bhiwandi court where he's being sued for defamation for saying "RSS people killed Gandhi".

"My fight is against the ideology which killed Gandhiji," Rahul Gandhi stated to the media after appearing in court. "I will keep fighting them," he added.

The case was adjourned today. The next hearing is scheduled for March 3.

At the last hearing, the Bhiwandi magistrate's court had granted the Congress leader bail after he appeared before it.

A case was filed against Rahul Gandhi when he claimed at a 2014 election rally that the people of the RSS were involved in the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. "RSS people killed Gandhiji and today their people (BJP) talk of him. They opposed Sardar Patel and Gandhiji,” Rahul Gandhi had said then.

The case  was filed by a local RSS functionary, Rajesh Kunte, over the former's speech in Bhiwandi on March 6, 2014, when he made the comment about who killed Gandhi.

The Bhiwandi court in Mumbai in November had granted him bail on a surety.
