Swamy targets Rahul again, says will ask ED to register FIR

New Delhi - Continuing his stand that Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi had taken British citizenship to set up a company in the United Kingdom, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamyon Wednesday said that he will ask the Enforcement Directorate to register an FIR against the former.

Swamy said in a series of tweets, "One crime has been admitted by Congi: Buddhu did set up a company in UK. So a FIR is to be registered under FCRA, PMLA, FEMA. I will ask ED. I have traced Backops as a shell co. to companies receiving kick backs in Indian defence deals' illegal commission. Another press conference (sic)".

Earlier, the senior BJP leader had asked Rahul Gandhi to release all the documents that he has in his possession regarding his 'citizenship'.

Swamy had said that, "For setting up a company in Britain, if he is an Indian citizen and has not informed the Indian Government under FCRA (Foreign Contribution Regulation Act), then he is subjected to prosecution. If he has not declared it in his affidavit as a candidate for Lok Sabha, not once but twice, then he is subjected to prosecution and even removal from his membership on that basis".

"I have produced documents, submitted by the company in which Rahul Gandhi is the 65 percent shareholder, director and company secretary. He is informing the registrar of companies on his annual return that he is a citizen of Britain in writing, not for one year, but four years in a row," he added.

Earlier, Swamy claimed of having evidences which could prove that the Congress vice president is a 'British national'.
Swamy alleged that Rahul Gandhi had declared himself as a British citizen between 2003 and 2009 in order to set up a private company in London, and has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding that the government strip the Congress vice-president of his Indian citizenship.

Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala said that, "Swamy and BJP are repeating rehashed allegations levelled earlier on multiple occasions including through press conferences held in Ahmedabad and Delhi in October 2012. From the day he was born, Rahul Gandhi has held Indian citizenship and Indian passport and has never held citizenship of any other country nor has he represented as such. The allegation by Swamy is entirely false. The Certificate of Incorporation of the said company is enclosed and clearly mentions".
