The Congress launched a day-long “Sankalp Satyagraha” in support of Rahul Gandhi at Rajghat in Delhi on Sunday. The “Sankalp Satyagraha” is being held after Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification from the Lok Sabha, a day after a court in Gujarat’s Surat convicted him in a 2019 defamation case. The disqualification will bar Gandhi, a four-time MP, from contesting polls for eight years unless a higher court stays his conviction. Congress’ top leaders including president Mallilarjun Kharge, general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra among other senior leaders took part in the protest.
