BJP leader Subramanian Swamy today demanded a CBI or ED probe alleging that there is a possibility that a shell company with Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi as Company Secretary and Director may have been formed in Britain.
Swamy, who a couple of days ago alleged that Rahul has declared himself a British national in documents before the company law authorities in the UK, told reporters here that he has written a fresh letter to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the subject and demanded a CBI or ED probe into it.
“While I do not have complete picture, the material enclosed are of sufficient prima facie value to order an investigation by the CBI/Enforcement Directorate with Mr Rahul Gandhi as the principal accused,” Swami said in a letter to Modi.
The Congress had however, rejected the allegations of nationality against Rahul saying that it is a “bunch of falsehood”. Reacting to gandhi’s challenge to the government to jail him, Swamy took a dig at him saying “whether he is right or not ….police will take him. He will not go (to jail) on his own will.” He also questioned Rahul as to why he did not disclose his interest in a British company in his election affidavit or under Foreign Currency (Regulation) Act or Foreign Exchange Management Act. “You clarify, then all things will fall in place,” he said.
