New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi tweeted Mahatma Gandhi’s quotes, “My religion is based on truth and non-violence. Truth is my God, and non-violence the means to get it.”

This comes after Surat District Court sentenced Congress MP Rahul Gandhi to two years’ imprisonment in a criminal defamation case filed against him over his alleged ‘Modi surname’ remark today (March 23, Thursday).

Later, he was granted bail by the court.

On Rahul Gandhi’s plea, the Surat court suspended the two-year jail term sentence for 30 days.

The judgement of the court was welcomed by BJP MLA Purnesh Modi, who filed the complaint against Congress MP Rahul Gandhi over his ‘Modi surname’ remark.

Reacting to the judgment, Congress leader and Rahul Gandhi’s sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra tweeted that the whole machinery of scared power is trying to suppress the voice of Rahul Gandhi by imposing prices, punishment, and discrimination.

She said her brothers have never been afraid, nor will they ever be.

“Have lived speaking the truth, will continue to speak the truth. Will continue to raise the voice of the people of the country,” she said in a Tweet.

The power of truth and the love of crores of countrymen are with him.
