RSS defamation case: Rahul Gandhi pleads not guilty

On Tuesday, Congress President Rahul Gandhi appeared before a court in Thane, in relation with a defamation case filed against him by RSS member Rajesh Kunte. In 2014 during an election rally in Thane, Rahul allegedly stated RSS was responsible for the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. At the court on Tuesday, however, he pleaded himself not guilty. He is on a two-day trip to Maharashtra and is also expected to meet and communicate with local party workers.
