Senior advocate Nirupam Nanvati argued on behalf of the complainant Purnesh Modi, while Abhishek Singhvi argued on behalf of Rahul Gandhi. Interesting comments were heard in their arguments. “Rahul Gandhi has not been disqualified by the court or by the complainant. According to the law made by Parliament.. he was disqualified. What does that have to do with the courts? Rahul Gandhi is calling himself a victim,’ argues Nirupam Nanvati.

At a public rally in Kolar, Karnataka in 2019, Rahul Gandhi said (“Why are all thieves staying in the name of Modi’s house”). Even after being convicted by a Surat court on March 23, Rahul Gandhi has not expressed any remorse for his statements. Even while holding a press conference, Rahul Gandhi said that the court’s sentence was a ‘gift’ for him. Asking Nirupam Nanvati, what is the point of claiming to be a victim in the court by saying that it is a gift outside?
On the other hand, senior advocate Abhishek Singhvi also argued strongly on behalf of Rahul. “Rahul Gandhi was elected by the people. He was disqualified due to conviction in this case. Because of this the people who elected Rahul Gandhi will suffer. In the current session and the next session, he has not raised his voice on behalf of his people. Rahul Gandhi made those comments during the election campaign. According to Article 19 (1) (a) of the Constitution.. he has the right to freedom of speech. To punish him is to trample on the freedom of speech’, Abhishek Singhvi expressed his argument. The court heard the arguments of both sides and kept the verdict in reserve.
