Congress president Sonia Gandhi and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi are likely to file their reply to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy’s plea on Saturday, seeking certain documents from the Associated Journal Limited (AJL) and the party in the National Herald case.

A Delhi court on July 1 sought a reply from Sonia and Rahul and other party leaders on Swamy’s plea.

Swamy, in his new application, sought documents from the Associated Journal Limited (AJL), including the copy of the ledger extract, bank statement filed with Registrar of Companies (ROC), minutes of the meeting in which the decision to convert the loan into share capital was taken, balance sheet, profit and loss account with auditors report in the year in which the loan was taken.

The documents sought by Swamy from the Congress also includes the copy of the ledger extracts of AGL accounts in book of the party, minutes of meeting of the Congress working committee authorising waiving off loan from AGL to Young India and copy of the loan agreement between Congress and the AGL.

Swamy submitted that these documents, which have already been held by the court, are necessary and relevant for the trial, and hence these documents need to be summoned.
