ANI Photo | “Definitely…”: Kharge on Rahul Gandhi’s participation during no-confidence motion in Lok Sabha tomorrow

Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge said that MP Rahul Gandhi will “definitely”speak during the no-confidence motion discussion to be held in the Lok Sabha on August 8.
“(Rahul Gandhi) will definitely speak,” said Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on being asked if Rahul Gandhi will speak during no-confidence motion discussion in Lok Sabha tomorrow.
According to Congress sources, Rahul Gandhi is also likely to open the debate from the Congress side in the House tomorrow.
Earlier today, Congress MP Karti Chidambaram said that he is absolutely certain that Rahul Gandhi will participate in the discussions on the no confidence motion in the Lok Sabha.
Reacting to the restoration of Rahul Gandhi’s membership in the Lok Sabha, speaking to ANI, Karti Chidambaram said,” We always knew this was going to happen. We knew we would get justice in the Supreme Court. I am glad that the Lok Sabha has not delayed reinstating him. We look forward to welcoming him back to the House. And this will strengthen our ranks. A no-confidence motion is coming up tomorrow; this will bolster our arguments on why this government has lost the confidence of India.”
“I am absolutely certain that he will participate in the no-confidence motion,” he added.
The debate on the no-confidence motion against the BJP-led government is likely to take place on August 8 and 9 in the Lok Sabha and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to give a reply on August 10.
The no-confidence motion moved by Opposition parties of I.N.D.I.A bloc was accepted by Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla last week.
The Lok Sabha Secretariat on Monday restored the membership of Rahul Gandhi after the Supreme Court on August 4 stayed his conviction in the ‘Modi’ surname remark case.
The Congress leader who was disqualified from the lower house in March 2023 was reinstated as the Wayanad MP.
Talking to ANI, Uttarakhand state All India Congress Committee (AICC) in-charge Devendra Yadav said, “I would like to congratulate the public…Rahul Gandhi who has come out as the voice of the country, will get a chance to speak again in Parliament. No matter how much the truth is suppressed, it cannot be hidden. After all the truth has won.”
Earlier the Supreme Court, in an interim order on Friday, stayed Gandhi’s conviction in the criminal defamation case over the ‘Modi surname’ remark.
The apex court issued notices to the Gujarat government and the complainant in July on an appeal of the Congress leader challenging the Gujarat High Court order.
The Gujarat High Court, had, in its earlier order, declined to stay Rahul’s conviction in the criminal defamation case in which Rahul was sentenced to two years in jail by the Surat court over the ‘Modi surname’ remark.
After his conviction in the case, Gandhi was disqualified as an MP from Kerala’s Wayanad on March 24
