Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi is addressing party workers in Bhiwandi, Maharashtra, soon after he was granted bail by a local court in a criminal defamation case filed against him for his alleged remarks that the RSS was involved in Mahatma Gandhi’s murder. The bail was granted on a personal surety.

The case will be heard next on January 30, which is incidentally the date when Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated in 1948.

The case has been filed by a local Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh functionary, Rajesh Kunte, claiming that the Congress vice-president during an election rally on March 6, 2014 blamed the RSS for killing Mahatma Gandhi.

Earlier, the Supreme Court had stayed the proceedings against Rahul but the latter withdrew his petition from the court in September saying he would face the trial. The move came after the apex court refused to interfere in the criminal proceedings pending against Rahul in the trial court. He submitted before the court that he “stood by every word of his statement”.

Rahul reached Mumbai on Tuesday morning where he was welcomed by the party leaders and volunteers at the airport. He left for Bhiwandi on Wednesday morning as the apex court had also declined his plea to exempt him from personal appearance before the court.

            This government should immediately look into the problems created in the agricultural sector due to the demonetization program. An acute cash crunch is reported from several quarters and life and the economy, the crops ready for harvest are all under the threat of peril. Government can make sure that there are enough money for next years loan write offs to the industrialists, but they should also take care of the farmers' interests or else what we will eat next year ?

              This guy is lacking guts and body language while speaking, inspite of so many yrs experience. Wonder why congress doesnt p leadership to other efficient people.lt;br/gt;Though his points are valid, neither he nor his corrupt family members includi g v@dra _ bianc@ couple have the capacity to reach out because they will be tainted in scams if they even try it. So, pls give

                People with huge unaccounted cash are jittery at the reform. They want to fire from the shoulder of common man. When the going is good they will never pay heed to common man.

                  UPA advanced all the underserving loans to Maallya. During Modi's regime he had to run away. His ets in India have been confiscated. Even during the visit of Theresa May extradition of Mallayya was one item taken up by the Govt. It is the congress who gave away many oil field to Reliance on a platter after which only they have become the no.1 business house in India. Otherwise they only had a textile business.

                          Mr Rahul hi, do u think Indians are fools and believe every base allegation you make? Your party has run the most corrupt governments from 2004 to 2014 looting wealth of India. The businessmen being favoured by NDA are creations of your party. Every time congress comes to power Indian financial insutions are bled by providing loans to your fav few till the insution dies. Banks are now openly reporting huge NPAs for loan given during your rule. A clic case is vijay Malaya .Would you like comment on this ? Have you not learnt any lesson by your shameful defeat in elections ? U still think that keeping Indians uneducated and dependent on your doles so that they keep standing with folded hands in front for minimum basic facilities will keep you in power. Change or perish Rahul hi

                            Rahul is absolutely right while telling this and it can be clearly judged also from the Industrial Activity in the Country. Export and Import are down, USD/ INR all time high, PMI is low, No Job Creation in to years and GDP is struggling.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt; Our reported GDP of 7.50 % is already under doubt and when there is going to be no money for daily activities of Farmers and Poors which mainly depend up in the Cash what would happen to Indian economy in coming days is going to be a very dangerous situation and Indian would suffer a lot if economy does not do well.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Govt decision to withdraw of High Denomination notes are good one but they adventure to his without a proper planning and thought process which has created a Economic Shut Down for Industry, Business, Farmers and Poor Guys. How can 80-85% Currency under circulation can be replaced by 15% of Low Denomination and whether there is mechanism in place to do it smoothly.
