Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday sought to downplay the controversy over MHA’s notice to Congress president Rahul Gandhi seeking his response on Subramanian Swamy’s complaint against him. Speaking to reporters in Lucknow, Singh termed it a normal process, adding that it is not a big development.
Rajnath explained that when a Member of Parliament writes to any ministry, action is required on their query.
Earlier today, the Ministry of Home Affairs issued a notice to Rahul asking him to clarify within 14 days his factual position on a complaint questioning his citizenship status. The MHA letter said that it has received a complaint from BJP MP Subramanian Swamy in which it has been brought out that a company named Backops Limited was registered in the United Kingdom in 2003 with Rahul as one of its directors and secretary.
