National Herald case: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said he will not let Prime Minister Narendra Modi achieve his dream of a 'Congress Mukt Bharat', especially when he was falsely accusing him and the Opposition of things that they had not done.

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said he will not let Prime Minister Narendra Modi achieve his dream of a ‘Congress Mukt Bharat’, especially when he was falsely accusing him and the Opposition of things that they had not done.

“Modiji Congress Mukt bharat chahte hain, hone nahin denge,” Gandhi told the media here.

” I respect the laws, but Modi ji is falsely accusing us. He thinks that the opposition will bow down. I want to tell the people of this country that myself and the Congress party will never bow down. We will fight for the rights of poor and will never back down,” he added.

Earlier, a Patiala House court granted unconditional bail to Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi on a personal bond of Rs 50,000 each.

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra took surety for Rahul Gandhi and A K Antony took surety for Sonia Gandhi. Ajay Maken took surety for Motilal Vora, Mallikarjun Kharge took surety for Suman Dubey and Ghulam Nabi Azad took surety for Oscar Fernandes.

The court will next hear the case on February 20, 2016.

Subramanian Swamy also demanded a bailable warrant against Sam Pitroda for non appearance and also opposed bail for the Gandhis.

The Gandhis along with the other accused in the National Herald case appeared before Metropolitan Magistrate Lovleen in response to summons issued against them. They have been summoned by the trial court on prima facie charges of criminal conspiracy, cheating, criminal breach of trust and dishonest misappropriation of property under relevant sections of the law.

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy filed the case in a local court in 2012. The trial court then issued summons to the two leaders among others in June 2014, but they approached the Delhi High Court seeking a stay. On Monday this week, the high court refused to stay the summons, and asked all of the accused to appear for a hearing on December 19.

The accused face allegations that they illegally acquired property worth Rs. 5,000 crore belonging to the National Herald newspaper.
