Swamy’s ultimatum to Sonia

via HK Correspondent published on April 22, 2006

NEW DELHI: In yet another startling revelation, Janata Party President Dr Subramanian Swamy has charged that the Union Home Ministry has not registered Congress President Sonia Gandhi as a citizen of India. “If however she claims to be Antonia Maino Gandhi who was given a flawed citizenship certificate on April 29, 1983, then she must prove that to be so with proof before the Returning Officer,” Dr Swamy said in a statement released to the media on Saturday. 


Dr Swamy who was assaulted by former Union Ministers Sathish Sharma and Sanjay Singh at Rae Bareli on Friday where he went to file objections against Sonia’s nomination as the Congress Party candidate demanded a written apology from her for the incident.


Dr Swamy, a former Union Minister for Law pointed out that though the Who’s Who of Lok Sabha says that Sonia Gandhi was born at Orbassano, according to a letter sent by the Italian Ambassador, Antonia’  is in  far away Luciana on the Swiss border. “This discrepancy must be also explained by Sonia Gandhi at the time of scrutiny,” Dr Swamy asked.


He alleged that on Friday evening, 35 Congress hoodlums tried to forcibly enter his suite in the VVIP Government Guest House in Lucknow by breaking down the door, and seeking to murder him. ” Because of my Party workers and later the Lucknow District Magistrate, the mobs were chased away, ” Dr Swamy said.


“If Sonia Gandhi does not apologize in writing for the Congress mob murderous attack on me, and the Government machinery does do its statutory duty of prosecuting the Congress hoodlums, I shall be obliged to retaliate within the democratic framework and the Hindu religious code of Apat Dharma (Morality in a crisis), ” said Dr Swamy.
