Bright Times News: The time for Sonia Gandhi’s deposition in the National Herald case has been extended by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). According to the Central Investigation Agency, the Congress President has been summoned on July 26. Earlier, Sonia Gandhi was asked to appear on July 25.
That date has been changed. On July 21, Sonia Gandhi appeared in the ED office for the first time in this case. On that day, he was interrogated by the detectives of the Central Investigation Agency for more than 2 hours. Incidentally, daughter Priyanka Gandhi was also present in the ED office during Sonia’s interrogation that day.
Sonia Gandhi was brought to the hospital after being diagnosed with Covid after being called for the first time in the National Herald case (Covid Positive). He was discharged from the hospital in mid-June. After that ED summoned him again.
Similarly, on July 21, the Congress leader appeared at the Delhi office of the Central Investigation Agency. A five-person team led by Monica Sharma questioned Sonia there. Three questions, according to the sources, were put to the Congress President during the interrogation.
First, who did Sonia and the leaders of the Congress consult before buying the National Herald from Young India Limited? In addition, Sonia owned shares of Young India Limited. He must have known that the National Herald had debts to settle. Third, how were the National Herald’s substantial assets allocated following the takeover?
Sonia Gandhi’s summons in the National Herald case has already started a political upheaval. Congress alleges the hat Narendra Modi government is using ED-CBI for political revenge. However, Padma-Shibir refused to take this allegation seriously. Why are there so many inquiries about appearing before the ED if one is not guilty? BJP leaders raised counter questions.
Rahul Gandhi, Sonia’s son, was previously questioned by the ED multiple times about the National Herald affair. In June of last year, he was questioned for a total of 5 days. On June 13–15, investigators questioned Wayanad MP for almost 30 hours. Additionally, Seva claimed that the former president of Congress was being harassed in the name of an investigation. What Padma-Shibir did not want to accept.
