Court orders criminal case against Sonia Gandhi

published on April 27, 2013
HYDERABAD: A local court has directed the Kushaiguda police to register a criminal case against Congress president Sonia Gandhi for allegedly cheating people of the Telangana region and “having dual citizenship” on different names.

On January 29, BJP leader Satish Agarwal had filed a private petition in the II Metropolitan Magistrate’s court of Malkajgiri alleging that Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, during her 2004 election campaign speech in Karimnagar, had duped the four crore people of Telangana by promising them a separate state if they vote for the party. The promise was also reiterated in the Congress’ election manifesto. Party leader from Rajahmundry U Arun Kumar had worked as a translator to Sonia Gandhi during the public meeting, the petitioner said.
“Though the Congress was voted to power for two consecutive terms, Sonia Gandhi has not fulfilled her promise and thereby duped the Telangana people. Thousands of innocents committed suicide due to this cheating,” Agarwal said.

The petitioner also alleged that Sonia Gandhi was holding dual citizenship (Indian and Italian) on different names. “While being an Italian citizen with name Antonia Maino, the Congress chief has acquired an Indian voter ID card and citizenship in the name of Sonia Gandhi, which is illegal,” Agarwal stated in the petition.
