Rahul Gandhi, a Congressman, has been expelled from the Parliament, which is a serious setback for him. Following his conviction and sentence in a defamation case by the Surat court, Rahul Gandhi was disqualified from serving as a member of the Lok Sabha.
What is the legal decision taken by the officials?
According to a notice from the Lok Sabha Secretariat, Rahul’s membership from the Wayanad Lok Sabha seat is no longer valid as of March 23. According to the terms of the 1951 Representative of the People Act and a 2013 Supreme Court decision, Rahul Gandhi is no longer eligible to serve in the House of Representatives and is therefore disqualified from doing so. Rahul’s disqualification as a Lok Sabha Member represents a significant defeat for the Congress party and the Opposition.
What Rahul’s disqualification means For the Congress party and the opposition, Rahul’s disqualification as a Lok Sabha MP is a major defeat. Rahul can no longer represent his party in the House because he is no longer a member of parliament. Rahul has been the face of the party throughout agitations, the Bharat Jodo Yatra, and taking on the Centre, therefore his disqualification also leaves his party without a leader and a rudder.
