A notice has been issued by Ministry of Home Affairs to Congress President Rahul Gandhi seeking his reply on a complaint filed by Dr. Subramanian Swamy in September, 2017. Dr. Swamy had produced documents along with his complaint regarding registration of a private limited company named Backops Limited in the United Kingdom in the year 2003 and dissolution of the said company in 2009. In the Annual Return of the company filed in the United Kingdom in 2005 and 2006, Rahul Gandhi was shown as a Director and Secretary having British nationality and an address in the United Kingdom.
Dr. Swamy has stated in the complaint that our Constitution prohibits dual citizenship and accepting of foreign titles. He also claims that no Member of Parliament can incorporate a company abroad without prior permission under existing laws and without declaring the same in nomination form during the election.
Dr. Swamy had sought an enquiry into the matter and that Rahul Gandhi be stripped of his Indian citizenship and membership of Loksabha, if the material furnished with the complaint are accepted.
