Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy said that Congress president Sonia Gandhi has three secret accounts in foreign banks and recently she had withdrawn $10 billion from a bank based in Vatican.

Swamy was here on Friday in connection with BJP’s campaign for third and final phase of Lok Sabha election in Assam. He met several leading citizens of the state before addressing a press conference.

“Sonia Gandhi has three accounts in foreign banks and her total amounts in these three secret bank accounts are 1.5 lakh crore. Recently she had withdrawn $10 billion from a Vatican-based bank,” said Swamy.

Swamy said that Gandh withdrew the amount from a Vatican bank after the new Pope declared that account must disclose the name of the holder. Swamy said the three banks in which Sonia Gandhi allegedly has accounts are one in Vatican, Sarasin Bank in Basell in Switzerland and Pictet bank in Zurich.

He said that Rs 120 lakh crore of the country has been kept in foreign banks by few individuals and if the BJP is voted to power, it would bring back all these amounts from foreign banks.

Swamy alleged Congress has been trying to unite the Muslim and dividing the Hindu society on caste line in the country.

These are a part of the vote bank politics of the Congress, he added.
