Rahul Gandhi a British Citizen? - Home ministry sends notice

The Home Ministry of India has sent a notice to Congress President Rahul Gandhi giving him fifteen days time to clarify allegations of him holding British citizenship raised by BJP leader Subramaniam Swamy.

The letter from BC Joshi, Director, Citizenship, reads "I am directed to say that this ministry has received a representation from Dr Subramanian Swamy, in which it has been brought out that a company named Backops Limited was registered in the United Kingdom in the year 2003, with address 51 Southgate Street, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 9EH and that you were one of the directors and secretary of the said company and you had declared your nationality as British".

Rahul Gandhi replying to Subramaniam Swamy has asked the latter for proof and the ministry has stated that documental evidence from the MP has been attached with the notice. Though the Congress spokesmen are dismissing the notice as proof of BJP panicking against Rahul it remains to be seen what his action would be to clear his name from the allegations.
