Bhiwandi (Maharashtra) [India], June 12 (NT): Today a court in Bhiwandi framed charges against Congress president Rahul Gandhi in a criminal defamation case lodged by the RSS.
The Congress scion asserted to reporters that he will continue to fight for his ideology.
"Our fight is with the policies of the Prime Minister due to which farmers in India are unhappy and the youth in India are jobless. The current government is running for only 15-20 rich people and media is covering that. But the main issues - farmers and jobs for youth - PM Narendra Modi is not talking about that," Gandhi scion said while addressing in a media briefing.
"Modi ji won't speak a word on inflation and fuel price hike. They have been putting different cases on me, but my fight is based on ideology, I will fight against them and we will win," Rahul added.
The charges in opposition to Congress scion were framed under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Sections 499 and 500 and the next hearing will be heard on August 10.
RSS activist Rajesh Kunte had earlier approached the court against Rahul Gandhi over his derogatory remark made at an election rally in March 2014, wherein he alleged the RSS for Mahatma Gandhi's assassination.
