Defending the Gandhi family after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) issued fresh notices to Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her son and MP Rahul Gandhi in the National Herald case, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Sunday targeted the BJP-led government at the Center saying that some people’s souls won’t be gratified till Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru gets notices from the ED and the CBI.
The Shiv Sena MP further said that questions have been raised over the hundreds of crores of rupees allegedly deposited in BJP’s coffers from the PM Cares Fund.
“The Congress may have made some transactions to sustain Pandit Nehru’s organization (The National Herald was founded by Nehru). Similar transactions are done by many organizations in the Sangh Parivar. Questions have been raised over the hundreds of crores of rupees deposited in the BJP’s coffers from the PM Cares Fund. But Nehru’s Herald has become the criminal. Some people’s souls will be satisfied only after Nehru gets notices from the ED and the CBI,” Raut wrote in his weekly column in Saamana. “Now, in this case, it would not be a surprise if a notice is issued to Nehru and is pasted on his memorial,” he added.
The Sena MP further said that the National Herald was not started for profit but as part of the freedom movement. “There is no money laundering in this entire case…. However, the ED has got involved with the case,” Raut wrote.
