Congress president Rahul Gandhi put up a brave front after getting bail in a defamation case in Mumbai today.

The case was filed against Gandhi after his comments about RSS ideology in the immediate aftermath of journalist Gauri Lankesh's murder. Rahul Gandhi had reached Mumbai this morning.

"Aakraman ho raha hai, maza aa raha hai," he said outside the court. (I am under siege, enjoying every bit of this fight). He also said that he stands with the poor and that he will continue his fight and fight "10 times" harder.

After journalist Gauri Lankesh was murdered in Bengaluru, Rahul Gandhi had said that Rashtriya Sayamsevak Sangh's (RSS) ideology was responsible (to motivate the murderers).

A defamation case was soon filed against him in this matter. A summons was issued to Rahul Gandhi in the month of February this year.

Before he reached Mumbai, a number of Congress workers gathered at the airport and raised slogans. They urged him to take his resignation back.

This morning All India Congress general secretary and Rahul Gandhi's sister Priyanka Gandhi tweeted in his support saying that few people have the courage to do what he has done.
