“These cases have been put against me because I am fighting for the rights of the farmers, poor, unemployed youth, Oppressed and suppressed people of our country.
The more cases they (RSS) slam against me, the more i’ll fight for poor, unemployed, youth, farmers of the country.
I am not scared of such cases,” said Gandhi to media persons outside the court complex.

During Assam assembly elections in December last year, 46-year-old Amethi MP was campaigning in Barpeta, which is 76 kms away from Guwahati. He visited Barpeta Satra monastery. However, later it was alleged by Gandhi that RSS people, specially women, had tired to stop him from entering the temple.
RSS denied these allegations and one of its volunteer filed a defamation case in Guwahati’s local court.
