Defamation case:  Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has been summoned by a court in Bengaluru in a civil case filed by the BJP.

The BJP filed a defamation case against the Congress leaders after the Assembly elections, alleging that the advertisements and false campaigning by Congress damaged the party's image.


Congress accused the BJP of "40 percent corruption" and placed several advertisements in newspapers

Earlier on June 1, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who appeared in court in connection with a private complaint filed by the BJP, responded that this is a civil case.

On Rahul Gandhi has been summoned by a Bengaluru Court, DK Shivakumar told, "He has been summoned by the court and he is going to attend the Court".

"It is a false case from the Bharatiya Janata Party on me, Rahul Gandhi and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, but to respect the court, he is coming...," he added.

On Lok Sabha election results, he said, "I am happy that the INDIA bloc has performed well in the country. Our alliance came close to power but decided to stay away from the government formation effort. The country thinks that the opposition should be strong. There is a new hope for the protection of the democratic system and constitution in the country. The AICC president will decide about the future."

As per the results announced by the Election Commission of India on Tuesday, the BJP won 17 seats in Karnataka whereas its ally JD(S) won only two seats.

The Congress's performance in its ruled state has improved, increasing from one seat in 2019 to nine seats in 2024.

Polling for the 2024 Lok Sabha Elections in Karnataka was held in the second and third phases on April 26 and May 7, respectively.

As per the results announced by the Election Commission of India on Tuesday, the BJP won 240 seats and the Congress 99 seats. BJP had won 303 seats in the 2019 general elections and 282 seats in the 2014 general elections.
