ED questions Sonia Gandhi for two hours, the next round is on Jul 25
After questioning for two hours on Thursday, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) summoned Congress President Sonia Gandhi again on July 25. It is learned that like Rahul Gandhi, Sonia also put the blame on the late Motilal Vora and said that all these forms regarding the formation of Young Indian and allotment of shares from Associated Journals Limited were prepared by Vora and people working in his office. Both Sonia and Rahul maintained that they were just signatories to the papers prepared by Vora, also an accused who passed away two years ago.
The questioning of the 75-year-old ended at her request, officials said. However, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said the ED told Sonia Gandhi that they had no further questions and she could leave. Officials said that around 2 pm, she requested to go back home and take medicines related to post-Covid issues. Jairam Ramesh claimed to the media that Sonia replied to 27 to 28 questions. Officials say Jairam Ramesh was just blabbering.
Rahul Gandhi was questioned for five days by the ED. The agency registered a case following the private complaint filed by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy. The case filed by Swamy is at the trial stage and all the accused including Sonia and Rahul are out on bail.
Income Tax Dept has already found huge tax evasion of Rs.414 crore by dubiously floating a private company Young Indian with just Rs.5 lakh paid up capital to acquire the public limited company Associated Journal Limited’s more than Rs.2000 crore worth assets by Sonia and Rahul. PGurus published the 105-page Income Tax Assessment Order exposing the blatant violations and corruption by Sonia Gandhi’s family.
Income tax won the case in all forums including the Tribunal and Delhi High Court.
