New Delhi: Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, said on Saturday that he supports her and his brother-in-law Rahul Gandhi, the party’s vice president, on the National Herald case.
The National Herald case has been filed by Indian economist and politician Subramanian Swamy against the Gandhis alleging that Indian National Congress granted an interest-free loan of Rs. 90.25 crore (US$13 million) to Associated Journals Limited (AJL), owner of the National Herald newspaper .
“Politics of vendetta and desperate malicious attempts of defamation will not be believed… Truth shall prevail,” Vadra posted on Facebook.
Sonia Gandhi and Rahul are expected to appear at the Patiala House court at 3 p.m. in connection with the case. They will be accompanied by Priyanka Gandhi and her husband Robert Vadra.
According to party sources, Sonia and Rahul may try to seek bail in the trial court if the need arises. Congress sources also claim that other party leaders may converge at the party’s central office at 24, Akbar Road, on their own to express solidarity with two top party leaders, later in the day.
