In a big slap to Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, the Delhi High Court on Thursday observed that their company Young Indian acquired National Herald newspaper’s publishing company Associated Journals Limited (AJL) and its huge assets in a clandestine operation. Ratifying the Single Bench’s order, the Division Bench headed by Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice V K Rao ordered the immediate eviction of Herald House, the headquarters of AJL.
Now as a last resort, Congress lawyers will rush to Supreme Court against the Delhi HC’s Division Bench Judgment.
The 63-page Judgment detailed the various illegalities, ratifying the December 2018 Judgment of Justice Sunil Gaur ordering the eviction of Herald House by the Urban Development Ministry (UDM). The Division Bench took note of the fact that AJL has been taken over by Young Indian Company for all practical purposes. It said: “This Court is conscious of the fact that Young Indian Company is a charitable company, but modus operandi was to acquire 99% of AJL’s shares speaks volumes. The manner in which it has been done is also questionable.”
The scathing observation by the Division Bench totally vindicates the first criminal case filed BJP leader Subramanian Swamy. AJL was represented by Congress leader and lawyer Abhishek Singhvi and the UDM by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta. In the Judgment, the Court observed that on many occasions, AJL did not answered properly and tried to hide the facts. Upholding the single bench view that the entire transaction of transferring the shares of AJL to Young India was nothing but a clandestine and surreptitious transfer of the lucrative interest in the premises to Young India, the bench observed
“The Judgment observed that with just Rs.50 lakhs, Sonia and Rahul controlled the Young India became the owners of more than Rs.400 crores worth owners of Herald House.”
“Even though Dr. Singhvi had argued that there is nothing wrong in such a transaction and it is legally permissible, but if we take note of the principles and the doctrine for which the theory of lifting of the corporate veil has received legal recognition, we have no hesitation in holding that the entire transaction of transferring the shares of AJL to Young India was nothing but, as held by the learned writ Court, a clandestine and surreptitious transfer of the lucrative interest in the premises to Young India. In fact, the contention of Dr. Singhvi has to be rejected and rightly so was rejected by the Single Judge even though without applying the principle of lifting of the corporate veil. In case the theory of lifting of the corporate veil, as discussed hereinabove, is applied and the transaction viewed by analyzing as to what was the purpose for such a transaction, the so called innocent or legal and permissible transaction as canvassed before us, in our considered view, is not so simple or straight forward as put before us, but it only indicates the dishonest and fraudulent design behind such a transaction as laid down in various judgments.”
Now as a last resort, Congress lawyers will rush to Supreme Court against the Delhi HC’s Division Bench Judgment. Already, the final appeal against the Income Tax Order exposing the Rs.413 crores asset-grabbing by Sonia and Rahul is before the Supreme Court. In the main case, the cross-examination of Subramanian Swamy by Congress lawyers is to resume on March 30.

WAIT UNTIL FINAL VERDICT. POWERFUL POLITICIANS ARE NOT PUNISHED BY TOP COURTS. See the case of Chidambaram and his son. The adjournemns can become a record i Guinners Book.
NOW IT IS CONCLUSIVELY PROVED BEYOND DOUBT THAT CONGI CONSPIRATORS MANIPULATED THE TAKE OVER OF NATIONAL HERALD’s AJL PROPERTY THRU YIL, WHICH STAND CONFIRMED BY DEL HC SINGLE JUSTICE SUNIL GAUR JUDGMENT & FURTHER RATIFIED BY DIVISION BENCH OF DEL HC HEADED BY CHIEF JUSTICE & ANOTHER JUDGE. NOW MIN OF URBAN DEVELOPMENT, GOI, TO RETRIEVE THE RENTAL INCOME EARNED BY THEM ALL THESE YRS FRAUDULENTLY, INCLUDING FROM GOI, PASSPORT OFFICE, DELHI NH BUILDING, MUST BE RECOVERED BACK WITH 18% INTEREST FROM @_soniagandhi @Rahulgandhi @Priyankagandhi @INCIndia. NO MERCY SHOULD BE SHOWN TO THESE DAY LIGHT METICULOUS ROBBERS.
Glad to see such a refreshing judgement at the backdrop of the Dynasty and their henchmen wielding immense power to influence entire judiciary. It was reported that PC misuses senior lawyer dress code and appears to argue a case and whenever Judge see him in that attire case goes in favor of PC or his client (Mother and Son or Damad et al) and come out with a “bail” or a “stay” or “adjournment” till his /his high profile clients astrological bad days walks into the SUNSET !! It is understood that Modi can do nothing on them for another decade because Sonia and her gang planted persons in key positions everywhere.
It is not possible to root out corruption as long as Dynasty wields influence on Judiciary. Corruption in India is being nurtured and sustained due to bad judiciary. The Indian judiciary is the most unaccountable in the world.
i just do not believe how this family got away with everything. I read somewhere that even in the defence Nehru tried to initiate caste based politics but Cariappa slammed down. THey have divided the country on caste creed and what other junk they have up their sleeve.
NO media or channel has reported, hence this is to be considered as Fake News !!!! Ha ha ha ha… It is BJP propaganda only…… Pappu or Fake Gandhis can do no wrong !!!
The lesson to be learnt by the citizens of India: “Never vote for congress or its alliance partners in the coming election”. VERY SIMPLE.
तारीख पे तारीख, तारीख पे तारीख – Really frustrating
It took more than 20 years to arraign Laloo who was systematically looting the poor
Same 2 decades for Jaya. Karuna Nidhi escaped unscathed.
V.B. Singh, Bupendra Singh Hooda, Pawars… and the list is endless
We urgently need Special Courts with DAY TO DAY HEARINGS to deal with Criminal NETAS who brazenly looted
IPC/Cr.PC should be amended by off-loading the onus of proving his/her innocence on the Beta – after prima-facie evidence is established & charge-sheet filed
I totally agree with your views !! Who ever comes to court , cases should be cleared with in specific time frame , there should be no DATE PE DATE PE DATE !!!
Courts are blessings for some Criminal Netas and Curse on Nation.
A tight slap on the faces of dinasty’s dirty politics & use of power. I am sure, the SC will turn down appeal. Hats off to independent judiciary.
