Here is a list of politicians who were disqualified from their political power in the past due to courts' convictions
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi disqualified from Lok Sabha on Friday following his conviction in the criminal defamation case over his 'Modi surname' remark. Gandhi was convicted by the Surat court for his 2019 remark on Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday. After the court's order, the debate sparked on the internet about whether the Congress leader will be barred from Lok Sabha. While some legal experts have said that the Wayanad MP is "automatically" disqualified with the conviction, others say he can overturn his own disqualification. However, today, the Lok Sabha secretariat confirmed that Gandhi has been disqualified from Parliament.
