Reacting on the defamation case filed against Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on his alleged remarks on the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, Bharatiya Janata Party has suggested him to make allegations based on facts and not on emotions. “If Rahul Gandhi has been summoned by court, he needs to comply with it. The better option always for any individual is to make allegations based on facts not on emotions. Otherwise these kinds of proceedings are about to emanate,” BJP leader Nalin Kohli told reporters.

Echoing similar sentiments, another BJP leader G V L Narsimha Rao said, “Gandhi was very irresponsible in making wild allegations against a nationalist organisation, RSS. It is time for him to publically apologise or face the consequences in the court.” Gandhi will have to appear before the Kamrup Metropolitan Court on September 29 in connection with a defamation case following his remark during his visit to lower Assam’s Barpeta in December last year. Gandhi had alleged that RSS workers had stopped him from entering the Barpeta Satra, a Vaishnavite monastery. His remarks triggered a controversy across the country when he alleged that the women were made to sit at the entrance of the Satra, refusing him entry.

An RSS volunteer Anjan Bora had filed a criminal defamation case against Gandhi in the court claiming that he had tarnished the organisation’s image by saying he was not allowed by its members to enter Barpeta Satra, a 16th century Vaishnavite monastery in Assam, on December 12, 2015. In the suit, the complainant charged Gandhi with making false statements to defame the RSS.

        It is too much to expect from the Uneducated Rahul to talk on facts which he is unaware and I don't think he has any emotions and if he has then he will talk with sense and to call him on his own words used against the Former PM MMS - It is Nonsense which he uttered to save Lallu a Bill was brought to protect him and enable him to contest Bihar elections and now he himself colluded with RJD shows what he is !!!!

          How is it even possible to defame the RSS? Is it possible to defame the acolytes of Adolph Hitler's tactics?

              It is the cogent base of the allegation that embarres the accused other wise no body care about them.So BJP's suggestion is empty of substance and an attempt to put a brave face before the people.It is the BJP who out of arrogance of power desperate allegations are hurled on its enemy which has also been confirmed by the various courts while deciding the case where allegations were leveled against the hi family it is not once or twice, every time they level allegation even go to the extent of filing cases in the court of law where no allegation sustains the scrutiny of law. While allegation leveled by the congress hold high.This shows who is in habit of leveling false allegations against whom?
