Addressing a convention of the Indian Youth Congress to mark the 98th birth anniversary of slain former prime minister Indira Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi said the RSS and the BJP had been targeting his family including his slain grandmother and father. He further stated that all the allegations levelled against him were baseless.
“I want to say one thing, Modiji, you have got agencies. Get investigations done. If you get anything in six months, put me in jail. The muck that you are throwing at me, at my family... Send me to jail if I have done any wrong,” he said.
Rahul said he was not afraid of the BJP and its ideological mentor, the RSS. “I will fight for the farmers, for the labourers,” he said, adding that he would continue to expose the Centre’s failures.
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, on Monday, had alleged that Rahul Gandhi had declared himself a British citizen while registering papers for a private company in London.
