On Monday, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi served a show-cause notice by the Ethics committee of Parliament asking whether he had declared himself as a British citizen during his stay in the United Kingdom.
“A show cause notice has been issued seeking his (Rahul’s) response on why he declared himself British citizen in documents related to a UK company,” Parliament’s ethics committee member Arjun Ram Meghwal told ANI.”
And this notice is a result of BJP Leader Subramaniam Swamy’s letter to PM Modi which he had written last November.
Accusing Rahul of declaring himself a British citizen to float a firm in the UK, last November, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy had written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, demanding that the Congress MP be stripped of his Indian citizenship as well as his parliamentary membership.
Outside the Parliament House when Rahul was asked about the matter, He said: “We will deal with that”.
