Srinagar, July 07 : In a major setback to former Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Gujarat High Court on Friday dismissed his plea seeking stay on conviction in a case related to Modi surname. The dismissal of the plea by the high court would mean that the Congress leader will continue to remain disqualified from the Lok Sabha.

Rahul Gandhi had moved the Gujarat high court after Surat court denied to grant stay on conviction in Modi surname case.

The high court, however, dismissed Congress leader’s request to stay his conviction in the case. The court order has come as a major blow to Rahul Gandhi as he will continue to remain disqualified from the Lok Sabha.

The court stated that he js seeking a stay on conviction on absolutely non-existent grounds.

It stated that stay on conviction is not a rule. As many as 10 cases are pending against him. It is needed to have purity in politics. A complaint has been filed against (Gandhi) by the grandson of Veer Savarkar in Pune Court after Gandhi used terms against Veer Savarkar at Cambridge”

It also said that refusal to stay conviction would not in any way result in injustice to the applicant. “There are no reasonable grounds to stay conviction. The conviction is just, proper and legal,” the court said. (KNS)
