Ahmedabad | Jagran News Desk: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday reached Ahmedabad and said that he was thankful to BJP and RSS for providing him with opportunities to his ideological battle against them to the public.

Rahul is in Ahmedabad to appear before a metropolitan court in a defamation case filed against him by Ajay Patel, the Chairman of Ahmedabad District Cooperative.

"I'm in Ahmedabad today, to appear in another case filed against me by my political opponents in the RSS/BJP and want to thank them for providing me these platforms and opportunities to take my ideological battle against them to the public. Satyameva Jayate," he said in a tweet after reaching Ahmedabad.

The defamation suit alleges that Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi, had falsely claimed that the bank was involved in a "scam" to swap Rs 750 crore in scrapped notes with valid currency within five days of demonetisation in 2016.
