Why are some Congress leaders agitating now on a year-old statement of Swamy accusing Rahul of consuming cocaine?

The filing of FIRs indiscriminately, based on botched news, reeks of a conspiracy involving Congress and others

Are Outlook & Asian News International (ANI) indulging in fraud?

For the past three days, Congress leaders are outraging and filing complaints against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy for a year-old comment accusing resigned Congress President Rahul Gandhi of using cocaine. The Congress leaders started filing on a re-publication of an article by Outlook Magazine’s website on July 5 based on a feed from the Video Agency ANI. But the fact of the matter was that Swamy had made this comment on July 5, 2018, and it is interesting as to why Outlook published this one-year-old comment. Was the mischief by Outlook and ANI deliberate or was it an honest mistake?

Lacking finesse or ignorant/ stupid?

Congress leaders in Congress-ruled states (Chattisgarh, Rajasthan) started filing complaints on July 7 and some units in Delhi started protest marching to Swamy’s home too. Some were filing First Information Reports (FIRs) in different police stations, claiming that Swamy’s comments on Rahul using cocaine hurt them, incited enmity, etc. Some filed private complaints in local courts. Only Rahul Gandhi can file a defamation case, which in his lifetime he won’t dare to do.

Supporting Mrs. Badal, Subramanian Swamy said that Rahul Gandhi will never pass dope test as he is a cocaine user.

Seeing the news reports on the cases filed, Swamy responded in his own style that Rahul Gandhi should undergo dope test to prove that he is not a user of cocaine. Actually, this controversy was created by Rahul Gandhi on July 5, 2018, by saying 70 percent of the people in Punjab will not pass the dope tests as they are under the influence of alcohol and narcotics. Rahul Gandhi was welcoming Congress-led Punjab Government’s decision on conducting dope tests. Rahul Gandhi, for the past so many years has been accusing that Punjab is under the influence of alcoholism and narcotics. Immediately, Akali Dal leader and Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal shot back saying that those who demanded dope test must subject themselves to it first.

Supporting Mrs. Badal, Subramanian Swamy had said that Rahul Gandhi will never pass dope test as he is a cocaine user. Swamy also spoke to the media about the 2001 detention of Rahul Gandhi by FBI in Boston airport in the USA[1].

But the question is why Outlook rehashed a one-year-old statement as a new one. After being caught red-handed, Outlook issued a clarification on July 9, passing the buck to ANI. “The above story is actually a year old. Mr. Swamy had said this to ANI on July 5, 2018. The story came on the ANI news feed again on July 5, 2019, and Outlook desk picked it up without checking. The error is regretted,” said Outlook Magazine in a Clarification below the controversial re-published report[2].

Outlook was forced to issue a clarification after Swamy’s Tweets on July 9, saying why Congress was jumping on his old statement and calling them “tube lights”.

Later ANI came out with a statement that Outlook was misquoting them. “Asian News International (ANI) has not put out any news item on July 5, 2019, quoting BJP MP Subramanian Swamy as saying that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi consumes cocaine. However, Subramanian Swamy’s statement with similar allegations was made to ANI in an interview in July 2018. This statement was not recycled by ANI in July 2019 as being alleged by a Magazine,” said ANI in a statement[3].

However ANI in later paragraphs admitted their mistakes: “However, in the news item on July 7 (2019) we had said that “earlier on Friday (July 5, 2019) Swamy had alleged that Rahul Gandhi takes cocaine and he would fail Punjab Government’s prescribed dope test.”

The above statements of Outlook and ANI smack of mischief or mistake from both organisations. But why are these organisations involved in these dubious practices? And why all of a sudden Congress leaders are getting angry? Swamy accused Rahul Gandhi’s “sleepy” staffers.

Were certain people in Congress and Outlook Magazine and ANI colluding on these kinds of dirty tricks? We can’t rule out anything on this mysterious development.

It begs the question as to who in Congress ordered the local leaders across the states to file complaints. People close to Swamy allege that it is the “dirty tricks” of none other than Sonia Gandhi to somehow drag Swamy into a series of cases and play dirty games in the areas where Congress is ruling. They say the idea might be hoist attacks when Swamy reaches the courts in the states where Congress is ruling. Swamy’s legal team said that these cases won’t stand in any courts of law and will take appropriate action.

  1. Paagal Pappu MUST be eternally grateful to Dr S Swamy for having diagonised his Cocaine addiction problem on the facial look, obviating the need for Paagal Pappu to consult a physician and spend his meagre money for Doctor’s consultation fee

  2. Its is deliberate, Bong BANDARLOK who wet dream of being ïntellectuals”because some Commie pig drilled in their mind, bcz they voted the Goondas for last 40 years. They think they are intellectuals because they lick the shitpots of ANY WHITE clean with their mouths. The gutter rag Outlook and ANI have done it deliberately. However white xtian illiterate, 2 bit bardancer from Italian sewers has forgotten, that we our SUBHASH BOSE and 1857 REVOLUTIONARIES kicked white stinking xtian asses of Brits so savagely, that Sun SET on not only the Brit but entire White Fascist empires. And Italy just provides brothrels and cocaine to Brits. Maybe Outlook-ANI staffers were have public orgasms like BDutt because of shape of Italy-Like ASS organ on heat

  3. Italian streetdogs Congis led by Italian White skinned pigshit Sonia who has long over lived the bloody welcome in India, and Running streetdogs of Italian Mafia-OpusDei- Vatican-CIA-ISI, Outlook and ANI (and these are led by the greatest pig shit eaters, eternal willing slaves and house Mommy-daughter brothrel runners for White skinned sexmaniac monkey pig CROSS XTIAN Bongs, begging in every state) IS NOT a genuine mistake but deliberate attack on Dr Swamy by the Running dogs of Vatican-Xtian-iTALIAN-White Klannists SLAVETRADERS.
    Dr Swamy and team should drag Sonia, and these Outlook Bong pigs to courts and WE WILL SEE ANY ATTACK ON DR SWAMY is AMPLY, TOTALLY and WITH INTEREST REPLIED BACK TO ITALIAN AND PIGLETS, FOR NEXT ONE YEAR

  4. I think ‘dirty tricks’ Sonia has earned a place in Italy, where she is welcome as queen storing the looted Indian wealth. She should be dispatched there forthwith

  5. If Dr. Swami’s claims were false, Pappu would have filed a Defamation Suit last year itself.

    Pappu knows for sure, such a suit will automatically lead to a Medical Examination & the truth will be out

  6. ANI and Outlook are mischievous media outlets. Some guys in Congress or some crooks connived with them thinking that seeing lot of cases, Subramanian Swamy would fear. It is like DOGS thinking to frighten a royal Elephant passing.
