Rahul Gandhi has been reinstated to the parliament following a stay of his conviction for criminal defamation over his ‘Modi surname’ remark. At a time when the Lok Sabha has been disrupted repeatedly by INDIA’s demand for a dedicated discussion on violence in Manipur prefaced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement, Mr Gandhi will return to represent his constituency Wayanad.

After restoring his membership, the Congress said he should be a key speaker in the Lok Sabha’s debate on no-confidence motion on Tuesday.

As Rahul Gandhi has visited Manipur, Congress MP Manickam Tagore wants him to participate in the discussion on the no-confidence motion.

He will present the facts about Manipur in the Lok Sabha, he said.

On March 24, Rahul Gandhi was disqualified as a Lok Sabha member, with effect from March 23, after a Gujarat court found him guilty of defamation and sentenced him to two years in prison.

Any punishment of two years or more automatically disqualifies a politician.

Sweets were served to INDIA alliance leaders on the occasion.

The Lok Sabha Secretariat tweeted the official notification, calling it a “victory of love against hate”.

Shashi Tharoor, a senior Congress MP, called it “a victory for justice and democracy”.

It is with great relief that I welcome the official announcement of the reinstatement of @RahulGandhi. He can now resume serving the Indian people and his constituents in Wayanad. It is a victory for justice and for our democratic system!” he tweeted.

Despite Rahul Gandhi’s unpalatable remarks, the Supreme Court ordered a stay on his conviction on Friday.

According to the top court, the trial judge had awarded a maximum sentence of two years in the case, noting that a day less would not have led to disqualification as an MP. According to the judges, disqualification affects not just the individual’s rights, but also the electorate.

Following his comments regarding Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s surname, Mr Gandhi was disqualified in May after receiving a two-year jail sentence in a defamation case. Mr Gandhi had asked “How come all thieves have the same surname as PM Modi?” during a rally in Karnataka’s Kolar ahead of the 2019 general election.”

Mr Gandhi, who has refused to apologize despite a reprieve by the top court, tweeted, “Come what may, my duty remains the same. Protect the idea of India.”.

Another criminal defamation case against Mr Gandhi, filed by the family of the venerable Veer Savarkar, is also pending.

According to Rahul Gandhi’s affidavit before the court, he has always maintained that he is not guilty of the offence, and that the conviction is unsustainable, and if he were to apologize and compound the offense, “he would have done it much sooner”.

The appeal is pending in the Surat Sessions court against Rahul Gandhi’s trial court order.
