Dual citizenship: Rahul files reply, attacks Swamy
Rahul Gandhi has replied to the notice of a Lok Sabha panel on the issue of his alleged “dual citizenship”, questioning its decision of taking cognizance of a “complaint that is not in order” and daring BJP leader Subramanian Swamy to make public his British passport number and other relevant documents.
In his reply on March 23 to the notice issued by the Ethics Committee headed by BJP patriarch LK Advani, Gandhi also said the complainant has “wantonly misled” on the issue.
“I am surprised that the committee of ethics has chosen to take cognizance of a complaint that is not in order. This is an endeavour to malign my good name. I have never at any stage sought or acquired British citizenship. My identity is that of an Indian,” Gandhi said.
