The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is likely to register a complaint of money laundering in the National Herald case against Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Vice President Rahul Gandhi.

The ED’s decision comes weeks after the Department of Revenue had sought legal opinion on the noting of a joint director, who was looking into the case earlier that a Prevention of Money Laundering Act case cannot be made out as there is no predicate offence against the two Congress leaders.

According to reports, the legal opinion is in favour of filing a case against them.

Reacting to media query, the Congress has said that the government is indulging in political vendetta.

Party spokesperson Shakeel Ahmed alleged that the Finance Ministry is under pressure to reopen the National Herald case. He said Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who had earlier spoken about closure of files, should explain why the files are being opened and notice issued.

    Sonia and Rahul should be punished in my opinion. Luckily, someone is pursuing the case. Hope they are sent to jail soon. Here's what Dr. Subramaniam Swamy said on this:

      Isn't there an end to the greed of this migrant family from Italy? Now that she is richer than Queen Elizabeth, after all, how much more will the former barmaid waitress require ? Is her greed a bottomless pit? Why should the poor people of this country be made to service her endless hunger for lucre and realestate? Look at it, where is Italy and where is Herald House, National Herald? Why should she want to own it? For whom?
