MHA issues notice to Rahul Gandhi to explain his alleged British Citizenship
New Delhi, Apr 30 (IBNS): In the middle of the Lok Sabha polls, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has issued a notice to Congress president Rahul Gandhi to explain his alleged British Citizenship, media reports said.
BJP MP Subramanian Swamy had complained against Gandhi's British citizenship.
A letter by BC Joshi, Director, Citizenship, Home Ministry, has been quoted by NDTV, "I am directed to say that this ministry has received a representation from Dr Subramanian Swamy, in which it has been brought out that a company named Backops Limited was registered in the United Kingdom in the year 2003, with address 51 Southgate Street, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 9EH and that you were one of the directors and secretary of the said company."
"It has been further brought out in the complaint that in the company's annual returns filed on October 10, 2005 and 31 October, 2006, your date of birth has been given as June 19, 1970 and that you had declared your nationality as British."
Swamy had first raised the issue in 2015 but a year later Gandhi accused the BJP MP of misleading the nation.
