Sonia Gandhi grilled for over six hours on Day 2, summoned again by the ED tomorrow
After questioning for six hours on Tuesday, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) summoned Congress President Sonia Gandhi again for a third round of questioning on Wednesday – July 27. It is learned that like Rahul Gandhi who was questioned for five days, Sonia also put all blame on the late Motilal Vora and said that all these modalities 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.
Sonia was earlier questioned on July 21 for two hours and she requested to go back home to take medicines for post-Covid ailments. On Thursday Sonia was questioned for six hours up to 6 pm and the agency allowed her to go home after an hour lunch break. Main petitioner and BJP leader Subramanian Swamy through his Tweet demanded that after questioning Sonia, the ED should confront her with Rahul Gandhi to find contradictions in their statements.
I think ED should have a questioning of Mother and Son sitting together and asking about their contradiction in answers given separately.

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.
