“We had maintained from the very beginning that it was a conspiracy of the BJP to disqualify Rahul Gandhi from the Lok Sabha. He was exposing in Parliament how the government was working for a select few and not for the masses,” Saikia claimed.

“The court has delivered justice. It has paved the way for Rahul’s return to Parliament. We are happy and confident that he will continue to be the voice of the people,” the Congress leader added.

In a big relief to Gandhi, the apex court stayed his conviction in the 2019 defamation case over his Modi surname remark, paving the way for restoring his Lok Sabha membership.
