50 Years Apart: Indira Gandhi Then, Rahul Gandhi Now- The Disqualification Story

Rahul Gandhi from opposition parties. Even p[arties like AAP and TMC which had distanced from Congress, have condemned the move and expressed support to Rahul gandhi in this phase. Meanwhile, this has sparked protests in every corner of the country by Congress workers who are calling a black day for Indian Democracy. As per the letter by lokSabha secretariat, the MP from Wayanad has been disqualified in terms of the provisions of Article 102(1)(e) of the Constitution of India read with Section 8 of the Representation of the People Act, 1951. Amid all of this political turmoil in the country one cannot help but notice how this is a replay of the events almost 50 years back. And we are forced to question is history repeating itself? Let me walk you through this piece of history, and you tell me the answer. Just like Rahul Gandhi now, his grandmother Indira Gandhi too was expelled from Loksabha and even sent to jail. This happened in 1978, after she lifted emergency imposed by her in 1975 and lost the subsequent elections. #RahulGandhi #SuratCourt #Defamation #LokSabha #PMModi #GujaratHighCourt #IPCSection504 #Disqualification #hwnews
