Welcoming the Supreme Court’s decision to grant stay on the conviction of senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, Chief Minister Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu while restituting belief in the judiciary said that the truth has prevailed at last.
Sh. Sukhu that Rahul Gandhi was continuously raising his voice in Parliament against the anti-people policies and divisive politics of the Central Government. For this very reason, the Central Government hatched a conspiracy to target him politically and to prevent his presence in the parliament and restrain him from contesting election of Lok Sabha in 2024. Sh. Sukhu said that an attempt was made to suppress the voice of Rahul Gandhi, who had become the voice of the people after the success of his ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’. His Parliamentary membership was revoked on the behest of the Union Government, but now the Supreme Court has given him relief and the Congress welcomes the Apex court’s decision.
The Chief Minister said that Rahul Gandhi would be back in the Parliament soon to raise the voice of the people of ‘Bharat’ against the tyrannical attitude of the opposition. This decision will pave the way for the entire opposition to unite under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, said Sh. Sukhu. In the ensuing Lok Sabha elections, the congress, under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, together with the united INDIA alliance, will leave no stone unturned to fight the despotic policies of the BJP with full might, he said.
