After Rahul Gandhi was granted bail n the defamation case filed by Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi over his 'Saare Modi Chor Hai' remark, he was seen savouring a plate of dosa.
In pictures accessed by Republic TV, the former Congress president was seen sipping on what looked like a cup of filter coffee, along with other Congress leaders.
In a crowded restaurant, the Gandhi scion was seen eating a plate of dosa along with a bowl of masala at Basant Vihar in Patna.
He was accompanied by AICC State in charge of Bihar Shakti Singh Gohil, State Pradesh Congress Committee president Madan Mohan Jha,
Congress MLAs Shakil Khan, Ajit Sharma and Rajya Sabha MP Akhilesh.
The former Congress president appeared before the Patna civil court on July 6 after he was summoned by the court over the defamation case filed on April 13, alleging that Rahul Gandhi's remark ' Saare Modi Chor hai', has insulted the 'Modi Community'
During the Lok Sabha election campaign, while addressing a rally in Karnataka, the recently resigned Congress president while taking a jibe at Prime Minister Modi, had reportedly stated that all thieves had the surname Modi -- referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, bank-fraud accused Nirav Modi and former Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi.
He said, "I have a question. Why do all thieves have Modi in their names — whether it is Nirav Modi, Lalit Modi or Narendra Modi? We don’t know how many more such Modis will come out."
Following this remark, Sushil Modi had expressed his displeasure against Gandhi's remarks maligning the Modi community.
Similarly, a petitioner in Bhopal had also filed a defamation suit over the remark.
“I have faced a lot of insult because of his remark. A lot of people asked if all Modis are thieves and hence I filed the suit,” said Pradeep Modi, the petitioner.
