Another lie of Rahul Gandhi exposed. Lies about summons in RSS defamation case in affidavit. Complaint filed to EC
“It beyond reasonable doubt that Mr. Rahul Gandhi is completely aware of the summons issued against him but is deliberately making false statements on oath in various affidavits filed with election commission including this Amethi Constituency. I say and submit that Mr. Rahul Gandhi is a compulsive liar…”, Complainant Gurupreet Singh
Rahul Gandhi’s series of lies does not seem to end. After his lies on Rafale was exposed in the Supreme court, it has come to light that the president of the Indian National Congress has lied in his election affidavits filed in Amethi and Wayanad Lok Sabha constituencies. It can be recalled that Mumbai Lawyer Dhrutiman Joshi had filed criminal defamation case against Rahul Gandhi and Sitaram Yechury for defaming the RSS. Both Rahul and Yechury had made comments in public linking RSS to the murder of Gauri Lankesh even before the investigation had begun.
On 5th April Rahul Gandhi filed his nomination for Wayanad and on 10th April he filed his nomination in Amethi. In his affidavit in the nomination papers, Rahul Gandhi has mentioned the details about the cases pending against him. The first case mentioned in the affidavit is the case of defamation (Case no. 624/SS/2018) filed against him for defaming the RSS while speaking in reference to the murder of journalist Gauri Lankesh. While answering to the question ‘Whether charges have been framed) in the affidavit under section 5(e), Rahul Gandhi has mentioned ‘NO’ and provides a caveat saying ‘Process issued but summons not receive yet). Now, Gurupreet Singh Anand, a resident of Mumbai has showed that Rahul has lied in his affidavit as the summons in the case of defamation has indeed reached his residence in New Delhi.

“Rahul Gandhi is a compulsive liar”
Gurupreet has now written to the Returning Officer of Amethi and demanded strict action against Rahul Gandhi for deliberately filing of wrong information in Election Affidavit filed in Amethi. Gurupreet in his letter with the subject line: “Complaint against compulsive liar Mr. Rahul Rajeev Gandhi for deliberately filing of wrong information in Election Affidavit filed in Amethi”, states that in the election affidavit Rahul Gandhi has stated on oath that:
A) He is aware of the case no. 624/SS/2018 because of Media reports.
B) That he has till date not received any summons regarding the above mentioned case i.e case no. 624/SS/2018 pending with the 25th Metropolitan Magistrates Court, Mazgaon, Sewree, Mumbai.
Consequently, Gurupreet states that the above claim of Rahul Gandhi is false as it has been corroborated through the courier tracking report that the copy of the summons were sent to Mr. Rahul Gandhi’s official address at 12, Tuglak Lane, New Delhi via India Post (Speed Post) on 29th of March 2019 and that the same was received at the same address on the 1st of April 2019 at 14:59 Hours.

The India Post tracking report provided by Gurupreet clearly mentions that the consignment with no. EM193297365IN that was booked on 29th March has been delivered to the addressee (Rahul Gandhi) on 1st April, 2019 at 14:59.
“Rahul Gandhi is hell bent on subverting all Indian systems”
Further after the summons were issued, Advocate Kushal Mor has appeared for the accused Rahul Gandhi in the case 624/SS/2018 on the 5th April, 2019 as per the Roznama (Court Register with all details of proceedings) of the 25th Metropolitan Magistrates Court, Mazgaon, Sewree, Mumbai. A ‘Vakalatnama’ on behalf of Mr. Rahul Gandhi has also been filed in the same court on 5th April by his lawyer.
The Roznama (see image) for the 5th April, 2019 lists the details of the case being heard on the day at the Metropolitan Magistrates Court, Mazgaon, Mumbai. It is clearly visible that the case Dhrutiman S Joshi Vs Rahul Rajeev Gandhi and Others has been listed in the court of Shri. PK Deshpande.
“Mr. Rahul Gandhi is hell bent on subverting all Indian systems like the Election Commissions office, The Judicial System, Defence forces through his false and defaming statements. There is also a likelihood of breach of peace and communal harmony in view of his derogatory and provocative statements made in respect of the RSS.”, Gurupreet Singh
Gurupreet says in his letter that these prove beyond doubt that Rahul Gandhi was ‘completely aware of the summons issued against him but is deliberately making false statements on oath in various affidavits filed with election commission including this Amethi Constituency.’ Gurupreet in his letter says “Mr. Rahul Gandhi is hell bent on subverting all Indian systems like the Election Commisions office, The Judicial System, Defence forces through his false and defaming statements. There is also a likelyhood of breach of peace and communal harmony in view of his derogatory and provocative statements made in respect of the RSS.” and urged the returning officer, “In view of the above i the undersigned request you to take strict action against Mr. Rahul Rajeev Gandhi as per law.
Advocate Dhrutiman Joshi, complainant in the case of defamation of RSS against Rahul Gandhi and Sitaram Yechury, spoke to Organiser and says that Rahul Gandhi has lied to the top democratic institutions in the country. “The summons in the case were sent from Mumbai post office to both Sitaram Yechury and Rahul Gandhi. The India Post tracking order clearly says that the parcel was received at his address on 1st April. The affidavits in front of the returning officers were filed on 5th in Wayanad and on 10th in Amethi and in both the affidavits he has falsely claimed that summons have not been received. This is a blatant lie”, he says.
Dhrutiman further informs that “Now they are claiming that even the India Post tracking report to be false. He has already lied to the Election Commission and now are questioning another institution, India Post. I suspect that by lying he is buying more time till the results of the elections and not respond to the summons where he is expected to be present in person to defend himself”, tells Dhrutiman. He informs us that as has written to the Chief Election Commissioner in New Delhi, he expects the returning officer in both the constituencies and the EC to take action as per the Representation of People’s Act since he has lied after taking oath.
While we wait for the returning officer at Amethi and the Election commission to act, it is also time that Rahul Gandhi comes clean on these charges. After facing ignominy in the Supreme Court for his comments against Rafale, he may have to face humiliation in the people’s court if he tries to simply brush aside the charges.
