List of Fake News against Rahul Gandhi since Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Rahul Gandhi has been a victim of immense misinformation campaign and BJP’s IT wing head is directly involved in some of them.
Rahul Gandhi has been disqualified from his post of Member of Parliament from Wayanad constituency. Rahul Gandhi had contested from Amethi and Wayanad in 2019 Parliamentary election. He had lost in Amethi but won in Wayanad and has been serving as an MP. He had been a Member of Parliament since 2004 and after almost 2 decades, he is not a MP anymore.
The Lok Sabha website has been updated swiftly to reflect the disqualification which can be see here. Reports suggest that he may have to vacate his official residence at 12 Tughlak Lane within 30 days post his disqualification. Incidentally, he spoke about him not having a house and the one he is currently staying at, is not his house.

There have been lot of debate and discussion about the validity of the Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification in the defamation case, which was filed against him in 2019 when he rhetorically asked “But tell me one thing…Nirav Modi, Lalit Modi, Narendra Modi…how come they all have Modi as common name. How come all the thieves have Modi as the common name?”
The video of the speech that for which the defamation case was filed can be seen here. (From 13:00)
