No urgent hearing on Rahul Gandhi' citizenship row, rules Supreme Court

The Supreme Court today refused urgent hearing on a plea seeking a direction to CBI to register a case against Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi for allegedly declaring himself as a British national before company law authorities there.

"There is no urgency in the matter," a bench headed by Chief Justice H L Dattu said when lawyer M L Sharma pleaded for urgent listing and hearing on his PIL. Recently, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has alleged that the Congress Vice President has claimed himself to be a British national before the authorities in connection with incorporation of a firm.

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has claimed that Rahul Gandhi had declared himself a British citizen while floating a private company in London between the period of 2003-2009. Further, he has written a letter to Prime Minister Modi demanding that the Gandhi scion be stripped of his Indian citizenship.
