Poornesh has filed a case against Modi
A case has been registered against BJP MLA Poornesh Modi in Gujarat for making objectionable remarks made by Rahul Gandhi during the election campaign, calling those with Modi’s surname as thieves. This matter has been heard many times in the past as well. Purnesh Modi is currently a minister in the Gujarat government. Under Bhupendra Patel’s government, he was in charge of road and building, transport, civil aviation and tourism and traveler development.
What Rahul Gandhi said
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi made a controversial remark during the Karnataka Lok Sabha election campaign on 13 April 2019. He asked why Modi was the last name for all the thieves. Why do Neerav Modi, Lalit Modi and Narendra Modi all have common surnames? The court recorded the video recorder statements of the then returning officer, the Election Commission, which recorded the speech at the last hearing in the case.
