Rahul Gandhi to Visit Wayanad, His Former Constituency, on Tuesday

New Delhi: After being disqualified as Lok Sabha MP, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will visit his former constituency Wayanad in Kerala for the first time on Tuesday.

He will address a public rally and hold a roadshow in Wayanad. Rahul Gandhi lost membership of the Lok Sabha when a Surat court convicted and sentenced him in a 2019 criminal defamation case. This defamation case was related to his ‘Modi surname’ remark during an election rally in Karnataka’s Kolar in April 2019 ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi said, “How come all the thieves have Modi as the common surname?”

Meanwhile, on Saturday, the Congress leader landed himself into fresh controversy after he posted a stinging tweet sporting the names of former Congress leaders, who either joined the BJP or ended decades-old ties with the grand old party, along with that of businessman Gautam Adani.

The names shown in the picture included Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma, former MP Ghulam Nabi Azad, Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia, leader Anil Antony and former CM Kiran Reddy.

Reacting to this, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has threatened to file a defamation suit against Rahul Gandhi over his tweet linking him to the Adani Group.
