Rahul Gandhi’s sister and Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra came out in defence of her brother after the party president was issued a notice by the government to explain his position over complaints on his citizenship.

The Bharatiya Janata Party’s lawmaker Subramanian Swamy filed the complaint alleging that Rahul Gandhi is a British citizen.

The Union minister of home affairs has asked the Congress chief to explain his “factual position” in the matter within a fortnight of receipt of the communication.

 

“The whole of India knows that Rahul Gandhi is an Indian. People have seen him being born and grow up in India. Kya bakwaas hai yeh?” Priyanka Gandhi asked on Tuesday, according to news agency ANI.

The Congress party had said earlier that the notice was a political move by the BJP to divert the attention of the public from key issues.

“The entire world knows Rahul Gandhi is Indian citizen by birth. Modi ji has no answer for unemployment, he has no answer for agrarian distress and black money, that’s why he’s resorting to a fake narrative,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala had said.
