Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday dared Prime Minister Narendra Modi to order an investigation against him, over allegations of violation of Constitution and ethical code on citizenship which disqualify him as the Member of Parliament.
“Modiji is the PM, he has all agencies at his disposal. They accuse me of so many things. Show your 56-inch chest. Launch an investigation against me and if you find anything in six months put me in jail, but stop using your lackeys to throw dirt at me or my family,” Rahul said.
“The BJP and RSS people have been flinging allegations at my family forever, on my grandmother, my father and my mother. I have been seeing this since I was a child I am not scared, I will keep fighting for the weak” Rahul added.
Meanwhile, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy reacted to Gandhi’s statement and said; “If the allegations are proved, whether he(Rahul) is ready or not, the police will come and take him without his permission. If he is interested in proper investigation, then he should submit to us the documents, which was submitted by him to the British Government’s registrar of companies.”
“Rahul Gandhi should also give an explanation on establishing a company in London. Our law and the government does not permit him to run a company there. So, I want to ask why was he silent on this for so long,” Swamy added.
” He(Rahul) is a third class man and making such irrelevant speech from an uneducated fellow is expected,” he added.
Swamy had written to Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Tuesday urging her to refer the matter of Rahul Gandhi’s alleged violation of Constitution and ethical code on citizenship to the Ethics Committee and disqualify him as MP if he is found guilty.
In his letter to Mahajan, Swamy said Gandhi, as a Lok Sabha member, has violated the ethics code to be observed by MPs and urged her to seek an explanation from him.
