Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on March 31 lashed out at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for being biased while the amendment of the bill which could have allowed a convicted MP to still be a member of the parliament was presented in 2013.
Speaking to the media, Assam CM said, "Rahul Gandhi is a morally corrupt man. In 2013, he humiliated Dr Manmohan Singh by demanding MPs be immediately disqualified post-conviction.
"In 2023 as chickens have come home to roost, rather than growing a spine, he is misguiding Kharge to protest against his own stand," CM added.

He also challenged Delhi Chief Minister to prove one single case in any part of India against him.
''So far, I haven't filed any case. Is there any pending against me in the entire country? I wanted to file a defamation case, but Arvind Kejriwal like a coward spoke inside the Assembly. So let him to Assam on April 2nd and say that there is a case pending against Himanta Biswa Sarma. I will sue him right away,'' Sarma said while speaking to reporters.
''I challenge him to show a single case against me. Which case is there against me? Let him come on April 2nd and speak against me a single word that I am corrupt and next I am going to file a defamation case. The same thing I have done with Manish Sisodia,'' he added.
