Priyanka terms claims of Rahul being UK citizen as ridiculous

Amethi, Apr 30 (GCCurrentAffairs) AICC general secretary for Uttar Pradesh East Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday termed as ‘ridiculous’ the claims that Congress president Rahul Gandhi was a British citizen.

Talking to reporters here, Priyanka, reacting to Union Home Ministry’s notice to Congress president Rahul Gandhi over his citizenship issue following a complaint by BJP MP Subramanian Swamy, Mrs Priyanka Vadra said, “I have never heard of such a ridiculous claim. The whole country knows that Rahul is an Indian. He was born and raised here.’’

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has sent a notice to the Congress president Rahul Gandhi over his citizenship issue following a complaint by Mr Swamy.

The MHA’s notice, sent by Foreigners Division of Home Ministry on Monday, has requested Mr Gandhi to “intimate factual position on the matter” within 15 days.

A 14-page notice has been served to the Gandhi scion on a complaint by Dr Swamy claiming that Mr Gandhi had, in a British Company’s Annual Returns filed on October 10,2005 and October 31,2006, declared his nationality as British.
