Mangaluru, Mar 24: MLA U T Khader has condemned the disqualification of AICC leader Rahul Gandhi from his position as an MP, calling it a "murder of democracy".
Speaking at a press conference at the circuit house in Mangaluru on Friday, March 24, Khader expressed his concern over the court's decision to allow only 30 days for an appeal against Gandhi's two-year jail sentence. He questioned the justification of disqualifying Gandhi from his position as an MP while an appeal was still possible, and whether such a process would apply to all MPs in the future.
Khader also criticized the ruling party for trying to suppress the voice of Rahul Gandhi, who he believes speaks the truth, and called on every party activist to support him. He warned that if the ruling party is willing to target a prominent leader like Gandhi, it will not hesitate to go after ordinary citizens as well. Congress party district president Harish Kumar, as well as other party leaders, were present at the press conference.
