Hours after the Lok Sabha membership of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was restored, his fellow party leader Shashi Tharoor on Monday said that from tomorrow we will analyse all the failures of the Central government and that the Wayanad MP will speak in the Parliament. 
“From tomorrow we will be analysing all the failures of the Modi-led government and I have no doubt that there will be strong participation from the Congress. I hope Rahul Gandhi will speak and we will have a vigorous debate on the question of the government’s failure starting with the Manipur which is a main issue we all want to be discussed,” Tharoor said. 
Congress’s Rahul Gandhi was reinstated as Wayanad MP by the Lok Sabha secretariat after the Supreme Court’s relief in the 2019 Modi surname defamation case. The Lok Sabha secretariat issued a notification announcing that his disqualification has been revoked and his membership restored.
Following the development, today, the members of I.N.D.I.A bloc celebrated by distributing sweets. 
Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge Kharge also welcomed the move saying that it brings relief to the people of India.
“The decision to reinstate Rahul Gandhi as an MP is a welcome step. It brings relief to the people of India, and especially to Wayanad. Whatever time is left of their tenure, the BJP and Modi government should utilise that by concentrating on actual governance rather than denigrating Democracy by targeting opposition leaders,” Kharge tweeted.
The apex court on Friday 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 order earlier, declined to stay his 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, Rahul Gandhi was disqualified as MP from Kerala’s Wayanad constituency on March 24.
