NEW DELHI—Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said he will appear in a court in Patna for a case filed by his “political opponents” in the BJP-RSS to “harass and intimidate” him.
Gandhi’s appearance in the court later Saturday comes days after he as well as CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury pleading not guilty in a defamation case in Mumbai filed against them by an RSS worker.
“I will appear in person at the Civil Court in Patna today at 2 PM, in yet another case filed against me by my political opponents in the RSS/BJP to harass & intimidate me. Satyameva Jayate,” Gandhi said in a tweet.
Gandhi and Yechury, who pleaded not guilty in the case in the Mazgaon-Sewree metropolitan magistrate’s court, will now face trial during which the court would record their statements and that of the complainant as well as other witnesses.
