Mr Gandhi withdrew his appeal to cancel the defamation case and said he would face trial against the Bombay High Court verdict refusing to quash the defamation case and summons issued to him by the trial court in Bhiwandi in Maharashtra’s Thane district.

“I stand by each and every word. I will never take my words back… I am ready to go to trial,” said Mr Gandhi had told judges through his lawyer, former union minister Kapil Sibal.

Earlier, in an affidavit filed in the Supreme Court a few days ago, the Congress vice president had said he had not blamed RSS as an institution for Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination.
