Congress MP Shashi Tharoor also reacted to the announcement by calling it a ‘victory for democracy’.
The Congress on Monday called it a ‘victory of love against hate’ after Rahul Gandhi was reinstated to Parliament after the Supreme Court's relief in the Modi surname defamation case. Gandhi’s Wayanad MP Status was restored and the Congress leader will be back in the Lok Sabha, amid continuous disruptions of the monsoon session over the Opposition alliance’s demand for a discussion on Manipur violence.
Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge called it a ‘welcome step’ & suggested that the Modi government should focus on real governance in whatever time they have left in their tenure. In an X (formerly Twitter) post, he wrote, “The decision to reinstate Shri @RahulGandhi as an MP is a welcome step. It brings relief to the people of India, and especially to Wayanad. Whatever time is left of their tenure, BJP and Modi Govt should utilise that by concentrating on actual governance rather than denigrating Democracy by targeting opposition leaders.”
Congress MP Shashi Tharoor also reacted to the announcement by calling it a ‘victory for democracy’. He wrote on X, “With enormous relief, welcome the official announcement of Rahul Gandhi’s reinstatement. He can now resume his duties in the Lok Sabha to serve the people of India and his constituents in Wayanad. A victory for justice and for our democracy!”
Celebrations began at the Congress headquarters in Delhi and during the INDIA bloc's meet to discuss the day's strategy for Parliament.
