On 126th birth anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru, the Congress leadership launched the website of the defunct National Herald newspaper and claimed it as the digital edition of the paper. But it is being as an attempt to beg mercy from the trial court in fraud, cheating and financial misappropriation case against Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. The case was filed by the BJP leader and economist Subramanian Swamy, who tweeted a link which claims the website launch as attempt to beg mercy from court. According to pgurus.com, In today’s world It is so easy to create a website and claim it as AJL’s site.

Associated Journals Limited, founded by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru in 1937, launched the beta version of its English Website– www.nationalheraldindia.com on Monday i.e. November 14 or Children’s day in India.
Informing about the launch AICC, in a press release, said, ““In keeping with the changing times, the newspaper group resumes phased publication as a multi-media outlet with a strong digital presence. The digital website will follow the same editorial vision and principles as that of our Founder, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. It remains committed to furthering the values it has always cherished and the best values of the Freedom Movement – that of building a modern, democratic, just, equitable, liberal and socially harmonious nation, free of sectarian strife.”
Here the question is the role of Young Indian, a private company floated Sonia and Rahul Gandhi with 38 percent of shares each to dubiously acquire the public limited company AJL’s assets.
And the second question is the Congress party’s allegedly illegal grant of loan of Rs.90 crore to AJL by Young Indian.
Now, the launching of the website is allegedly seen as a cover up by Congress leaders to beg mercy in court during the trial.
