In another setback for Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, the Gujarat High Court has refused to grant an interim stay on his conviction in a criminal defamation case over his "Modi surname" remark in which he was sentenced to two years in jail by a Surat court. The court will give an order on his petition post the summer vacation, after June 4. The former Congress president had sought an interim stay of the conviction till the High Court pronounced the order on his petition. On March 23, a Surat court sentenced Gandhi, who represented Wayanad parliamentary constituency in Kerala, to two years in jail after convicting him under sections 499 and 500 of the Indian Penal Code for criminal defamation. The defamation case was filed over Gandhi's “how come all thieves have Modi as the common surname?” remark made during an election rally at Kolar in Karnataka in 2019. Following his conviction, Rahul Gandhi was disqualified from Parliament.
