    Sonia, Rahul grabbed property worth Rs 1,600 crore: Subramanian Swamy - The Times of India

    NEW DELHI: Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Thursday accused scion of Nehru-Gandhi family and ruling Congress party leader Rahul Gandhi of running a fraud company and of misusing government facilities. Addressing a news conference, Swamy alleged that Rahul and Sonia jointly owned 76 per cent of a company called Young Indian. He also accused Rahul of not disclosing about this company in his affidavit to the Election Commission while filing his nomination for the 2008 Lok Sabha elections.

    He said that public funds were converted to finance the privately-owned company. He has also claimed that meetings of the company were held at 10 Janpath, Sonia Gandhi's govt-allotted official residence, which was against the law. He said that Young Indian now 'owns' the Herald House in Delhi and two floors of it have been rented out to passport office that pays the company Rs 30 lakhs a month as rent, of which, 76% goes to Rahul and Sonia.

    Swamy has demanded a CBI inquiry into the case.

    And did he have some proof for all this? I mean we dont want wild allegations which cannot be proved.

    Kejriwal did not have anything substantial on Gadkari.

    It was Times now picked on Gadkari and came up with many documents to show all kinds of "hera pheri"

    One thing about Swamy is, he always has proof for what he says, no matter how outrageous it might sound initially. He is not to be taken lightly. Also, he has a better technique of fighting than the IAC folks. IAC people just make noise in the media and move on. Swamy actually takes the process through the courts.

    Rahul boy suing Swamy? What a nincompoop. I will give up chasing East Asian girls the day Rahul baba does that, I swear.

    Let there be a probe.

    What I find perplexing is that the Congress is not fielding their seasoned spokespersons to rebut and using a nonentity called Jha from Hamaracongress. com. who come out as a very incompetent nincompoop messing the case for the Congress with irrelevance when there are substance available to rebut the issues raised.

    If Swamy is wrong, then there is no idea of threatening to sue.

    They should.

    Let the reality surface.

    Why make hollow threats to sue just go and do it, I can't wait for the day when all the worms come out crawling from every nook and corner? Let the game begin to put all of you behind the bars for at least 150 years as we do in USA.

    Hahahahaha!
    The games have now begun. The games have truly begun now.
    This is where it ends, how it ends. The death knell of Maino and Vinci has been rung.
    No more words henceforth. Only actions will speak.

    Godspeed Mr Swamy
    Jai Hind!

    We will have to see how the main stream media will follow it up. Will they dig up more like in the case of Gadkari or will they shut their mouth and go on about their ways. I have seen no mention of Swamy's allegation on NDTV website but they were quick to publish the 'legal threat' letter of Rahul baba.

    At this point of time, they are very very nervous. The pressure from the management is intense. Not a word against Sonia. They are trying hard, and will be trying hard for the next few weeks to hide this news, limit it to tickers at the bottom at best. They understand that this is the end of the road.
    If Swamy is sued, then they'll have to cover it and support Gandi and when they lose the case, that'll be a spectacular loss of credibility for these anti national media houses. On the other hand, if they don't cover it, someone else surely will, and that'll be loss of TRP, a thing more valuable to them than their lives.
    Pretty sure Arnab, Barkha, Rajdeep couldn't sleep last night.

    TRP=money.

    If there is any truth in swamys allegation, then media could be paid to shut up. At the end it's all about money.

    Re: Sonia, Rahul grabbed property worth Rs 1,600 crore: Subramanian Sw

    Prima Facie the way Swamy has laid down the charges, things look very serious.

    In a written reply to the Pioneer Rahul Gandhi's Office had categorically stated that they had no plans to revive the National Herald newspaper.
    If there was no plan to relaunch the now defunct paper, than what was the need to buy the company, if not for the real estate.

    Second point: The company is formed under Section 25 ( A non profit organisation), then why is it that the property has been rented out to various organisations, including the external affairs ministry for the Regional Passport Office. Rents on the Bahadur Shah Zafar Road are very high. where is this money going??

    There are many questions to be answered here, for some there will be logical answers and for some there will be no answers, and therein lies the problem for the Gandhis and their party.

    Grow up and fight me in court: Swamy to Rahul

    Swamy denied receiving any letter and seemed in mood to fight it out in the court. "Either Rahul Gandhi sends a letter to me or his lawyer. I will throw either of the papers in the dustbin without reading it. My advice to Rahul Gandhi is grow up, go to the court and file a defamation case. I will fight him there," Swamy said,” he was quoted as saying by a news channel.

    If the Gandhis do not sue Swamy, then they will lose their credibility and with the alleged skeletons falling out of the cupboard, it will really ruin the reputation of their illustrious ancestors.

    Why threaten only?

    There is no time to act indecisive.

    Act now.
