Thiruvanthapuram, June 25: Rajya Sabha BJP MP Subramanian Swamy, holding forth on various Congress leaders, said that Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi is with a “special friend” in London. When the media pointed out that Gandhi had spent some time in Kumarakom a few years back, Swamy shot back, “No, now it’s not like that, he is right now in London with a ‘special friend’.”
On Monday, a day after his 46th birthday, Gandhi announced that he is going abroad on a short visit for a “few days”. He also said that “What one now needs to know is how many passports he (Gandhi) has”.
“In London, documents have now come out about his status, and now he says that ‘Swamy has to come out with documents’. It’s not me, who has to do it, instead it’s he who has to come out with the documents. He is now running away from it,” said Swamy.
He also did not spare Robert Vadra, who earlier in the day called him an “attention seeker” and a “classist” for his comment that ministers who wear a coat and tie look like waiters. Targeting the previous UPA regime at the Centre on corruption, Swamy said “Very soon, you will see that the Congress Working Committee can be held in Tihar Jail.”
“P. Chidambaram and his entire family will certainly go to jail in the Aircel case and so would other Congress leaders who have various other cases against them. It wouldn’t be long when the CWC can be held inside the jail,” said Swamy. Training his guns on Thiruvanthapuram Lok Sabha member and Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, he said he has always said that Tharoor knows who killed his wife. “He knows who killed her and how they did it,” added Swamy.
