New Delhi, July 24 (IANS) Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on Friday said that Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi should apologise for his allegations against External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj or the party will file a criminal defamation case against him.
“Rahul must apologise for his allegations against Sushma. If he does not apologise, it’s time for us to file criminal defamation case against him,” Gadkari told reporters here.
He said that Sushma Swaraj is a prominent leader of the country and Rahul Gandhi has not only defamed here but also the country’s foreign minister of the country, who represents India outside the country.
Terming the allegations against Sushma Swaraj as baseless, Gadkari said: “She has done nothing wrong. She has not indulged in any form of corruption.”
Rahul Gandhi had accused Sushma Swaraj of committing a criminal act that deserved jail.
