Rahul says PMO behind vendetta
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.”
