Five crore defamation notice to Uttarakhand Congress President, Minister Rekha Arya's husband sent
Minister Rekha Arya's husband Girdhari Lal Sahu has sent a defamation notice of five thousand crores to Uttarakhand Congress President Ganesh Godiyal
Girdhari Lal Sahu, the husband of Uttarakhand cabinet minister Rekha Arya, has sent a defamation notice of Rs 5 crore to state Congress President Ganesh Godiyal in connection with the statement made in the warrant case. Along with this, a notice of contempt of court has also been sent to Godiyal.
In an ongoing case in Bareilly, the court had issued a warrant against Minister Arya's husband Sahu some time back. State Congress President Ganesh Godiyal had surrounded the state government in this matter and accused it of saving the minister's husband. Now the husband of the minister has sent a notice of defamation and contempt of court through his advocate to State Congress President Godiyal.
This notice has been sent through e-mail, WhatsApp as well as faxed to the State Congress Office. In the notice, citing the report of the Law Commission, it has been said that there should be no media trial in the cases which are going on in the court. Unless someone is convicted in a case, no presumption can be made against him or her. State Congress President Ganesh Godiyal should be aware of this.
In the notice sent by the lawyer of the minister's husband Sahu, it has been said that the statements made by the state Congress President in the media before the hearing in their warrant case have caused defamation of his client and his wife. It is also alleged that Godiyal has made deliberate statements keeping in view the upcoming assembly elections. At the same time, it was even said that Sahu should surrender in court. State Congress President should keep in mind that he is not a judge. It has been said in the notice that no one can be held guilty by any wrong concept. The State President of Congress and his party leaders are issuing statements blaming him even before the hearing in the case.
