New Delhi, Nov. 1: The office of Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said that it was seriously considering taking legal action against Janata Party (Secular) president Subramanian Swamy for levelling charges against the Nehru-Gandhi family that were ‘defamatory and utterly false’ in nature, and without basis or foundation.
The statement described Swamy’s charges as a “motivated attempt for the reasons, which one can easily discern.”
It further said “they are committed to pursuing all legal action against this incident of scandalous abuse on the name of a press conference.”
The statement reads, “Please be informed that we shall pursue the legal remedies open to us against the utterly motivated and that we shall pursue all proceedings that are available in law.”
Earlier today, Swamy accused Sonia and Rahul Gandhi of converting a public trust into a fraud privately owned company and for misusing their positions.
Swamy alleged that both Sonia and Rahul Gandhi each owned 76 per cent share of a company called Young Indian, and added that this company owns Herald House in Delhi, which is worth Rs.16oo crores.
He demanded a CBI inquiry in the matter. (ANI)
