A case has been registered against senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy in the court of First Judicial Magistrate Kanchan Chaudhary for his alleged remarks made against outgoing Congress President Rahul Gandhi during an interview given to a national magazine.
This case has been registered on the basis of a complaint given by a Congress worker Vishal Rathor. The matter will come up for hearing on the 9th of August.
Vishal Rathor, a former in-charge of Congress Scheduled Caste section’s Haridwar parliamentary constituency, has filed this petition through his counsel Neeraj Kumar Singh.
Subramanian Swamy had said in an interview given to the magazine Outlook that Congress President Rahul Gandhi was a drug addict. He had further said that the drug, for which Rahul has an addiction, is legally banned and of a very high intoxicating nature.
Rathor has said in his petition that the statement of Subramanian Swamy has not only tarnished the image of Rahul Gandhi as a person, but it has defamed the entire Congress Party too. This has led the senior party workers to feel disgraced.
Vishal Rathor said that he had demanded action against Subramanian Swamy after giving a complaint in Jwalapur police station on 8 July, but police didn’t take any action. That is why he was forced to file the petition in the court.
His counsel Neeraj Kumar Singh said that the action of Subramanian Swamy comes under serious cognizable offense. He said that the hearing of this case will take place on the 9th of August.
This must be noted that the senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy is known for his candid, bold and fearless expressions. He is a renowned scholar, economist and a political activist.
Earlier on many occasions, his statements have rocked the parliament and the national political scenario.
He is the man who had exposed the lies of Sonia Gandhi having a degree from Cambridge University.
And it was he who had raised the legal and constitutional question of the nationality of Sonia Gandhi that became a big hurdle in the way of her taking oath as the Prime Minister of India and ultimately making way for an ACCIDENTAL PRIME MINISTER.
