Congress President Rahul Gandhi is now in trouble over his self declared BritishCitizenship in the United Kingdom (UK) Company Registry in 2004 and his usage of name Raul Vinci in his Cambridge University Certificate. Based on the complaint by an Independent candidate Dhruv Lal, Amethi to Returning Officer Ram Manohar Mishraon Sunday has ordered the postponement of scrutiny of Rahul Gandhi’s nomination papers to April 22 report by ANI
Subramanian Swamy earlier also urges Home Ministry to probe into Gandhi’s secret citizenship.
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy in September 2017 filed a complaint to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh with all documents on this regard including Rahul Gandhi’s secret bank account in the name of Raul Vinci seeking cancellation of citizenship of Congress President.
As per the documents produced by Swamy, Rahul himself declared to the British company registry Companies House that he is a British Citizen living at 51 Southgate Street, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 9EH. The records filed by Rahul shows he has 66 percent shares in Backops Limited. He declared another residential address in London, again claiming to be a British Citizen. The second address is 2, Frognal Way in London. All these documents were filed by the major shareholder Rahul Gandhi, who was then a Member of Parliament (MP) in Lok Sabha from 2004.
Swamy says in a letter,
“I am enclosing this with letter some authenticated documents regarding the registration in 2003 and dissolution in 2009 of a Private Limited company in United Kingdom with an address located in London. The name of the company is BACKOPS LIMITED and Director and Secretary of this company were Mr. Rahul Gandhi, presently Lok Sabha MP. The incorporation papers of this company No: 4874597 was filed with Registrar of Companies England and Wales on August 21, 2003, and the dissolution was on February 17, 2009.
I am enclosing some bank records of the Barclays Bank which shows that on page 5, a Raul Vinci having the same date of birth as that of Rahul Gandhi has been maintaining a current account in Barclays Bank bearing No: 504664922071640796.
“The name ‘Raul Vinci’ is widely used by Rahul Gandhi while traveling abroad claiming that it was necessary for security purpose. In fact, he enrolled in Development Studies at the University of Cambridge in the UK under the same name,” said Swamy in his complaint to Home Ministry and Enforcement Directorate.
This bank account was opened on July 18, 1996, and closed on December 10, 2014 after BJP came to power. As per the documents submitted by Subramanian Swamy, this Raul Vinci’s address is 2 Frognal Way in London – the same address as that of British citizen Rahul Gandhi in the British Company Register (Companies House).
These documents expose that Rahul Gandhi is secretly holding multiple passports and his Indian citizenship is mandated to be canceled and Clearly, shows that Rahul fooled both Lok Sabha and the British company registry.
Earlier also in many television interview he speaks on this matter and recently he speaks to republic tv and swamy said in November 2015 he had brought this issue before Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan and she had ordered Ethics Committee to probe on the matter. The Ethics Committee headed by LK Advani had sought a response from Rahul Gandhi. In his Rahul’s reply, he never explained why he has declared himself as a British citizen and made evasive replies that none can doubt his Indian origin.
That is not an answer. He has to reply why he declared himself as a British Citizen to British company registry while he was Lok Sabha MP, which only an Indian citizen can hold the post.
And some days back Mr.swamy has tweeted from his official twitter account the degree of rahul Gandhi name as ‘Mr. Raul Vinci’ which clearly shows Mr. Raul Vinci read from an MPhil in Development Studies at the University of Cambridge in 2004-2005 and he failed in one of his paper. https://twitter.com/Swamy39/status/1116741689086029824
“This is a violation of the law and the Constitutional provision”
- As per Article 9 of the Indian Constitution, every citizen of India is barred from voluntarily acquiring citizenship of any foreign State. While the United Kingdom permits Dual Citizenship, India emphatically does not.
- Article 18 prohibits an Indian citizen from accepting even foreign titles. Hence Mr. Rahul Gandhi has committed an unconstitutional act and therefore liable to be stripped of his citizenship and membership of the Lok Sabha.
- No Member of Parliament can incorporate a company abroad without prior permission under the existing laws and without declaring the same in his nomination form as candidate for election to Parliament.
At the end i will provide the copy of letter which is wrote by Mr. swamy on feb. 19 2016 to Enforcement Directorate Shri Karnal singh
