Ending suspense built for the last few days, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will file an appeal before a sessions court in Gujarat’s Surat city today. He will challenge his conviction in a criminal defamation case in connection with his remark on ‘Modi surname’. Rahul Gandhi will be present in the sessions court to file the plea against a metropolitan court’s order sentencing him to two years in jail. Rahul Gandhi’s lawyer Kirit Panwala said that Gandhi will reach the sessions court at around 3 pm. Senior Congress leaders, including Priyanka Gandhi, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, and Himachal Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu will also be in Surat when Gandhi arrives on Monday afternoon, according to party sources. Rahul Gandhi is expected to reach Surat at 2.00 pm in the afternoon. The court of Chief Judicial Magistrate HH Varma in Surat had on March 23 convicted Gandhi and sentenced him to two years in jail. The court had also granted him bail and suspended the sentence for 30 days to appeal in a higher court. But Congress said since the order was in Gujarati, it took time to translate the order.
