Puducherry Congress to hold fast to protest Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification


The Puducherry Pradesh Congress Committee is holding a dawn to dusk fast today to condemn the disqualification of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi as member of Parliament.

Senior Congress leader and Former Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanaswamy during a protest rally held yesterday said that Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification is a clear case of political vendetta that has been unleashed by the Bharatiya Janata Party headed NDA government at the Centre. According to him, the Central government was trying to suppress the opposition but they would continue their protests unabated.
As Rahul Gandhi was convicted and sentenced to a two year prison term on March 23 in a criminal defamation case over his ”Modi surname” remark, he has been disqualified from Parliament from the date of his conviction.
