National Herald Case: Rahul Gandhi says charges false, will never bow down


The heavily secure Patiala House court saw virtually the entire Congress leadership attending the proceedings in solidarity. While former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh filed the bail bond on behalf of Sonia, her daughter Priyanka Vadra did the same for brother Rahul. “Modi ji has always made false allegations but we will never bow down. I respect the law and will continue to fight,” said Rahul Gandhi. “I will always work for the people of the country, especially the poor and no one can stop me or the Congress party.”
Sonia Gandhi too came out strongly against the BJP government at the center. “Political opponents have always targeted us. Will continue to fight them & work for people of the country,” she said. “Law of the land is applicable to all. Have no doubt that truth will prevail.”
Meanwhule, complainant Subramanian Swamy clarified that he did not oppose the move for bail during Saturday’s proceeduings. “I did not oppose bail today, only opposed exemption . Thus the Accused all produced bail for Rs. 50 000. No exemption. No bail boast?” he tweeted.

The court will next hear the case on February 20.
