NEW DELHI: Congress vice-pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi launched an all-out at­tack on the Naren­dra Modi gov­ern­ment on Wed­nes­day, de­scrib­ing the Na­tional Her­ald funds mis­use case against him and his mother, So­nia Gandhi, as “pure po­lit­i­cal vendetta com­ing out of the PMO”.

The Gand­his may have to ap­pear in a Delhi court on De­cem­ber 19 to face al­le­ga­tions that that they il­le­gally ac­quired property worth crores be­long­ing to the now-de­funct Na­tional Her­ald news­pa­per in a case that dis­rupted Par­lia­ment for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive day.

“One hun­dred per cent po­lit­i­cal vendetta. This is pure po­lit­i­cal vendetta com­ing out of the PMO. It is their way of do­ing pol­i­tics,” Rahul said out­side the Par­lia­ment House a day af­ter he ac­cused the gov­ern­ment of play­ing vendetta pol­i­tics and try­ing to si­lence his crit­i­cism of its poli­cies. “I have full faith in ju­di­ciary. We will see at the end what comes out. Truth will come out.”
