RSS seeks compensation from Rahul Gandhi
(Insider Bureau) -Days before the first phase of Lok Sabha elections, a Thane civil court has summoned Congress president Rahul Gandhi and CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury over a defamation suit filed by the RSS.
The civil defamation suit was filed by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) member Vivek Champanerkar who hails from Thane. According to Champanerkar, RSS was defamed by both the two Opposition leaders in the days after the Gauri Lankesh murder of 2017 in Bengaluru.
Immediately after the journalist's murder, Gandhi had tweeted, "Anybody who speaks against the RSS/BJP is attacked & even killed. They want to impose only one ideology which is against the nature of India".Yechury too had addressed the media and made similar comments linking RSS to the murder while the investigating agencies are yet to establish any such connection.
