Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi on Thursday threatened to take “legal action” against Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy for making “utterly false, entirely baseless and defamatory” allegations that he and his mother, Sonia Gandhi, had illegally converted a public trust into private property.
Strongly rebutting the allegations, Rahul’s office sent a letter to Swamy threatening to take legal action against him.
“Our attention has been drawn to your purported press conference...The allegations made by you are utterly false, entirely baseless and defamatory. Your action of calling a press conference is a motivated attempt for reasons which one can easily discern. We are committed to pursuing all legal actions against the scandalous abuse evident in your so-called press conference...Please be informed that we shall pursue the legal remedies open to us against the utterly motivated and irresponsible contents of your press conference... ,” stated the letter.
