BJP MLA from Gujarat, Purnesh Modi who had filed a criminal defamation case in 2019 against Rahul Gandhi in the ‘Modi’ surname defamation case said that he welcomes the Supreme Court stay on his conviction, however, he will continue his legal battle in the court.
“Today, SC has stayed Rahul Gandhi’s conviction. We welcome this verdict given by the court. We will continue our legal battle in the court,” said Modi. 
His statements came after the Supreme Court has stayed Rahul Gandhi’s conviction in a 2019 criminal defamation case over his ‘Modi’ surname remark. 
Notably, in a relief to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, the Supreme Court, in an interim order on Friday, stayed his conviction in the criminal defamation case over the ‘Modi surname’ remark.
The apex court earlier in the day began hearing an appeal filed by the Congress leader challenging the Gujarat High Court order which declined to stay his conviction in the criminal defamation case.
Meanwhile, Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary said that he will approach the Lok Sabha speaker to reinstate Gandhi’s membership in the lower house
