The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said on Thursday that the Gandhi family’s history is one of corruption and that three of its members are currently on bail amid the controversy surrounding the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) investigation into the alleged involvement of top Congress leaders in a money laundering case connected to the National Herald newspaper.
Gaurav Bhatia, the national spokesperson for the BJP, addressed a press conference here and brought up five legal issues in relation to the National Herald case.
Both Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are out on bail on charges of corruption and even after being accused, they are in public life. if someone is accused, then the law of our country says that he or she will be also interrogated like the common people. The way Rahul Gandhi and Congress are behaving is not good. The way the investigating agency is being intimidated is also not fair. Why should ED go to Sonai Gandhi’s residence to talk to her? PM Modi has ended the VVIP culture. They should remember, that they got bail in the lower court in which they are considered accused.”
“Is it not true that Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi hold 38 per cent shareholding each in Young Indian? It means both of them hold 76 per cent stake in Young India and the law says that if you are controlling more than 50 per cent stake then whatever decision is taken is done by the majority shareholder. Now, when the controlling stake belongs to Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, then the blame should not be put on such a person who is not in this world today. So who did the money laundering and the scam?” stated the BJP spokesperson.
