rahul

BENGALURU: A special court in Bengaluru granted bail to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday in connection with the defamation case filed by the Karnataka BJP unit. Rahul appeared in court in person. The court will consider the case again on July 30.

It was BJP leader Keshav Prasad who lodged the complaint alleging that the advertisements in local newspapers and 'false campaigning' by Congress ahead of the 2023 state assembly elections damaged BJP's image. The ad given by Congress had accused the BJP government of taking 40 percent commission. The rate card of corruption was also published in the advertisement.

The case was registered against Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC), Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, Deputy CM DK Shivakumar, and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. Earlier, the court granted bail to Siddaramaiah and Shivakumar who appeared before it on June 1.
