    BJP leader Subramanian Swamy urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday to direct the Urban Development Ministry to take back the land allotted to the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation at the heart of New Delhi. In his letter to the Prime Minister, Swamy pointed out that in 2015 he filed a petition to the Ministry citing the illegalities of Rajiv Gandhi Foundation using the prime property which was actually allotted to Congress party in 1988.

    “Much information has come in the public domain about the fraud of the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation. I had written a letter to the Ministry of Urban Ministry several years ago, pointing out that RGF building was built on the plot on the Raisina Road that was granted by the Ministry of Urban Development for building the Congress party office. But instead, the building has been usurped by RGF. I strongly recommend Government taking back te plot and nationalisng the building,” said Swamy in his letter to Modi.

    After filing a complaint against the illegal use of Herald House in the National Herald case, Subramanian Swamy in 2015 filed a petition to Urban Development Ministry for taking back the land illegally used by Sonia Gandhi family-controlled Rajiv Gandhi Foundation.

    How did Sonia Gandhi grab the plot allotted for Congress party headquarters?

    In 1988, a year prior to first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru’s centenary year (1989), Government (then ruled by Rajiv Gandhi) allotted a prime plot to the Congress party to build a big headquarters named Jawahar Bhawan. Across India, Congress workers collected more than Rs.500 crores for the construction of their headquarters. Many Corporates also donated money and it was known to all that the building was actually constructed by the late Dhirubhai Ambani. There were two sources of income– Congress workers collected money across the country and the Corporates pitched in too. Meanwhile, after the 30th day of the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi, June 21, 1991, Sonia Gandhi started the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation (RGF) and slowly usurped the building meant for Congress party’s headquarters. This is a clear violation. The land was allotted for Congress party’s headquarters and now using as Sonia family’s private foundation.

    The irony is that the Congress headquarters is still working at the old building at 24, Akbar Road, neighboring Sonia Gandhis’ home at 10, Janpath Road. In 2009, Congress party and all political parties were given land at Deen Dayal Upadhayay Marg area. The Congress party is yet to construct its headquarters, while even cashless Communist parties made their offices in the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg area.

    After filing a complaint against the illegal use of Herald House in the National Herald case, Subramanian Swamy in 2015 filed a petition to Urban Development Ministry for taking back the land illegally used by Sonia Gandhi family-controlled Rajiv Gandhi Foundation. Swamy also demanded probe RGF operating in tax haven Seychelles also.

    1. Okay people, let’s not blame the fake Gandhis anymore. This is on Indians. It’s time so say bye bye fake Gandhis, thanks for your time, now please move aside.

    2. Government must take back the land and building illegally used by Rajiv Gandhi Foundation: Subramanian Swamy.

      Fact of the matter is that arrogant PM Modi lead talent-less govt does not give credence to what all Dr.S.Swamy brings to the notice.

      Top BJP leadership has got its own opaque agenda and questionable hidden deals shall be followed right from the words go… no matter economy goes into the Negative!! Massive scams will be forgotten and black money walas during PM Modi’s six years might have transferred black monies to bottomless pit “atal” not possible to race hence “time” is given……..

      So called PM Modi’s patented “timing” is nothing but where men become mice.He is afraid of losing his power and pelf. It seems BJP believes in cutting a corrupt with a corrupt person just like cutting a diamond with a diamond!!! Turn coats and dummies are preferred!! Better to stop blindly supporting/following BJP.

      A nation without a strong Economic performance and growth can never aspire to become a super power militarily or as an alternate massive manufacturing hub.

    3. To eradicate corruption totally, the accountability of the EXECUTIVE must be fixed. There should not be rallies and big meetings physically by political parties (A lot of money is spent to draw crowds to the meetings), public debates must be encouraged between candidates standing in the election and must be telecast in all channels, live. A list of parameters of governance should be made public each month so that the public, in general understand the performance of the Government objectively – than by rhetoric.

    4. Why is SC not hearing NH building eviction case ? This land belong to all Indians including men of judiciary. It is the duty of every Indian to protect nations wealth and help the govnt to distribute it to honest citizens. This is the least we can do to our nation.

    5. The entire fake-Gandhi family is to be kicked out of India, as soon as possible. Whatever the properties that has been usurped by them or encroached upon by them, should be confiscated.
      It is a very very distant dream. I do not know whether that will happen. The entire fake-Gandhi family should be kicked out where ever they go & should be begging around.

    6. Unfortunately, Modi govt. is using Gandhi family misdeeds only to threaten them for making deals. This time they are using it to silence Congress on Indo-China border dispute. Govt. is not going for the kill. Despite so much conclusive evidence they are not letting anyone get punishment. Yesterday only PGurus wrote how govt. is lenient on NDTV owners. I don’t think much would happen this time, as always, eventually Gandhis will surrender.

    7. Corruption, Corruption, Corruption, subjective Favouritism all the way right from the Top leaders‘ doors at the Delhi Ruling High Command trickling down to the peon working in the village office is the norm and way of life in India. To name a few in the long list of high profile cases, the National Herald, Bofors, 2-G Scam, Chidambaram Frauds, Prannoy Roy NDTV Hawala transfers Come to mind as the much publicized cases have remained for ever in deep cold storage with no conclusive legal action. India’s TOP level Bureaucrats, Police Officers, Netas from BOTH SIDES, Corporate honchos, Judges, Bank Executives, Media and entertainment mafia Dons are ALL tainted and in many ways culprits contributing for this unrighteous-adharmic way of life that has eroded the very fabric of India. Media Barons, Neta-Dons, Entertainment Industry Heroes, Spiritual Leaders brazenly take sides and succumb to subjectivity. Modi has absolutely no answers why high profile corruption cases have not been fast tracked and verdicts delivered over the last six years. Now, the name calling between the BJP-NDA vs Congress-UPA as to who ceded more space to China incursion has become the hot topic of worthless discussion and both groups should be ashamed for the failure. Auditor Gurumurthy has no guts to raise the issues and fault-lines of the ruling BJP Govt. in his Tamil magazine. BJP has not truly, sincerely and effectively addressed the issue of combating corruption to keep up with its poll promise made way back in 2014.
