National Herald Legal Matter, No Role of Govt: BJP

Submitted by Subeditor on Sat, 2015-12-19 18:54 New Delhi: The BJP on Saturday lashed out at the Congress for levelling “baseless allegation” against the NDA Government with regard to the National Herald case. It said that the case is a completely legal affair and added that the court has taken cognisance of prima facie breach of trust before the Modi Government came to power. “The allegation of political vendetta is completely a baseless allegation. Here in this case no body, neither the RSS, nor the BJP has got anything to do. The court has taken the cognisance, and this was taken before Modi Government came to power that this is matter of prima facie breach of trust,” Telecom Minster Ravi Shankar Prasad told media . “How property worth Rs. 2,000 crores was misappropriated without informing shareholders, the high court took a decision, and now, it is for the court to decide. They should face the court,” he added. He further slammed Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi levelling false allegations against the ruling regime. “If Rahul Gandhi has a problem with the court, he can proceed to the Supreme Court. As far as our credibility is concerned, we have come by people's support,” he added. Meanwhile, BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain also pointed out that the matter had no relevance to politics. “This is a legal matter and the law is doing its work, it has got no relevance to politics. Everyone is equal before the law and the law will take its course. The action taken by the law will be accepted to all,” Hussain said.
