Congress part will move higher court against the summon issued to Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in the National Herald Scam.
The earlier government of India – UPAI and II – was being pretty much manned by Congress chief Sonia Gandhi who had to refuse the direct ‘dictatorship’ after nation-wide protests on her foreign origin.
The queen of Congress party ran a government of scams for ten years and left the country with litters consisting of bogus schemes and freebie-culture-promoting programmes.
But she was shown her place by the people of the country. The message that she is not above law and that she will have to pay for her sins was delivered by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy who successfully procured summons for the Queen and the failed Prince Rahul Gandhi from the court in National Herald Scam case.
But it seems the dream that Swamy saw and showed others still has many hurdles in between. The lawyers of the Congress party, as Times of India reports, are likely to defend it from the wrath of Swamy by moving the high court against the trail summons.
ToI says: “Sources said the appeal in a higher court was the only way to deal with the immediate aftermath of the summons to Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi on a petition filed by Congress-baiter Subramanian Swamy.”
The same report quotes AICC spokesman Randeep Surjewala saying that “The entire episode leading to the filing of a complaint by Swamy is nothing but a motivated, mischievous and malicious attempt by him and BJP’s dirty-tricks department to unleash their revengeful vendetta.”
He also said that both Swamy and his colleagues in BJP forgot to tell the court that “Young Indians” is a not-for-profit organization and that in such a company, none of the directors or shareholders can claim any remuneration, salary or other emoluments and it’s a prerequisite that no profit or dividend can be given to any stakeholder.
Perhaps it is the opposite. Surjewala and his party is forgetting the fact that Metropolitan Magistrate Gomati Manocha had noted while issuing summons to the mother-son duo that “From the complaint and the evidence led so far it appears YI (Young Indian) was in fact created as a sham or a cloak to convert public money to personal use or as a special purpose vehicle for acquiring control over Rs2,000 crore worth of assets.”
Maybe Surjewala thinks that the Queen and her Prince are above the law.
And it is pretty much proved by the sycophancy that Congress party spokespersons provided on Times Now. While on the TV panel debating the National Herald case against Sonia and Rahul, Kumar Ketkar screamed “How can we trust court orders?” Probably he trusts the Queen more than anything. But once charged with contempt of court maybe he will start respecting the judiciary.
Similarly, the same Surjewala, quoted by the ToI, was also present on the panel and claimed Swamy is nobody to interfere in the “private” matters of the Congress. If scheming and grabbing land/assets to a tune of Rs 2000 crore is a “private” matter of the Congress, then the country should be called Congress Pvt. Ltd.
But Sonia is no ‘Queen’ of India and nor is Rahul ‘Prince’.
The higher court should show no mercy towards them as it is not only the National Herald case but many others too that happened during UPAI and II that have the hand of Congress.
And, above all, we are a democracy where all are equal.
