New Delhi: Expressing supreme confidence over the possibility of his winning the National Herald case, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, Tuesday, said that it was an open-and-shut case and Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul will to go Tihar Jail.
“My assessment is that it is an open and shut case and they will go the jail,” Swamy said in an interview to a private news channel.
Dubbing all Congressmen as jokers, Swamy said that the Congress is fooling the public by claiming that Sonia and Rahul have got relief from the court today.
“What relief is this? They have been made to give a promise that they will be present in court as accused...they have no case anywhere the latest order is so damaging that Supreme Court won't touch it,” he said, adding, “If they ask for bail, I will ask for their passports to be seized.”
“They will have to appear on December 19 other wise (arrest) warrant will be issued,” Swamy said.
`Sonia Gandhi is coward`
Swamy also launched a direct attack on Sonia Gandhi and said the Congress president behaves like a coward whenever there is crisis in the country. He claimed that Sonia had abandoned India when a war broke out between India and Pakistan in 1971.
'I don't need anyone's help, not even of PM Modi'
When asked whether the BJP government at the Centre would want him to go slow in the case as the GST Bill is set to be presented in Parliament, Swamy said, “That's government's problem not mine. I fight corruption and will continue my fight.”
He also suggested that GST Bill must be sacrificed for the cause of fighting corruption, adding that the government should remember that it had come to power on the promise of fighting corruption.
Swamy said he doesn’t need support from BJP to take on Sonia and Rahul and went to add that he even does not need the support of PM Modi on the issue.
`Government can't do a damn thing!`
On whether the government or any of the ministers will interfere in the strong case – as per Swamy – against the Gandhis, he said, “The government cannot do a damn thing in this. The fact of the matter is that it is a democracy and courts are independent.”
“I don't want any of the ministers poking their nose into this (the case),” Swamy quipped.
“I am sure I am going to win.”
