Rahul Gandhi, the Vice President of Congress said that he is ready to face trials for the comments he made on Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
Rahul Gandhi in an election rally in 2014 had said that the RSS was responsible for the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi in 1948.
RSS said that the defamation case against Gandhi could be withdrawn if he publicly said that he doesn’t blame RSS. However, Gandhi’s counsel Kapil Sibal said on his behalf- “I have always said that. I will say
it now. I will always say that. Let this case go to trial.” A few days earlier, Gandhi had said that he never blamed RSS as an institution for the assassination, but some people associated with it.
