Congress to Stall Parliament : National Herald Case

Upping the ante against the government, the Congress has decided to stall the Parliament over the National Herald case, according to sources. Sources said that the Congress is likely to raise the issue of the Herald case in both Houses of the Parliament. The Congress has called the case a “political vendetta” by the Central government, with an assertive Rahul Gandhi saying that he would continue “to put pressure on the government” and that he won’t “back off”. BJP leader Subramanian Swamy had alleged that Associated Journals Ltd (AJL), the publisher of the now-defunct National Herald newspaper, had received an interest-free loan of ₹ 90.25 crore from the Congress and that the party transferred the debt to Young India Ltd (YIL), “a firm in which Sonia and Rahul Gandhi each own a 38-percent stake”, for ₹ 50 lakh. Earlier, Delhi High Court had rejected the Gandhis’ plea to quash summons against them, ruling that they will have to appear in the trial court now. A Delhi Court yesterday directed the Gandhis to appear in the court on December 19 at 3 pm in connection with the case.
