New Delhi, Nov 19 (IANS) Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday dared the government to jail him if he had done any wrong, saying the RSS and BJP had been throwing muck at his family for years.
Addressing a convention of the Indian Youth Congress here to mark the 98th birth anniversary of slain former prime minister Indira Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi said the RSS and the BJP had been targeting his family including his slain grandmother and father.
Rahul Gandhi said different allegations had been levelled at him but there was no truth in them.
“I want to say one thing, Modiji, you have got agencies. Get investigations done. If you get anything in six months, put me in jail. The muck that you are throwing at me, at my family…. Send me to jail if I have done any wrong,” he said.
The Congress leader said he was not afraid of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its ideological mentor, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
“I will fight for the farmers, for the labourers,” he said, adding that he would continue to expose the government’s failures.
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy alleged on Monday that Rahul Gandhi had declared himself a British citizen in the registration papers of a private company in London.
