New Delhi: Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday said there was nothing for her to get scared of in the National Herald case as she was the daughter-in-law of Indira Gandhi.
"Why should I be scared of anyone? I am (former prime minister) Indira Gandhi's daughter-in-law. I am not scared of anyone," Gandhi told reporters in New Delhi.
Sonia Gandhi's comment was the first after a Delhi court fixed December 19 for her appearance, as also of her son Rahul Gandhi before it in connection with the National Herald case.
The Delhi High Court on Monday dismissed a plea of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to quash a trial court's summons to them in the case.
The Congress later dubbed the case 'petty vendetta politics of the BJP'.
