On Monday, Subramanian Swamy once again targeted Rahul Gandhi by presenting documents which state him as a UK resident for which the Congress has reverted back by presenting a list of documents of Rahul's BACKOPS company, squashing all the claims made by Swamy.
Documents produced by congress clearly state that Rahul Gandhi is a citizen of India and has never held any other citizenship apart from India. These documents are just contrary to the claims made by Swamy that state Rahul as a British citizen.
It has created a dilemma of trust as both the representatives are backing their arguments with their own evidences.
Here's what we know about the organisation:
BACKOPS is a Mumbai-based company, which was established in Delhi on 28 March 2002. With an authorised share capital of Rs 25 lakh, Rahul Gandhi is the largest shareholder in the company.
The main work of the company is to provide engineering and detail and structural planning services for large overseas countries. Apart from Rahul Gandhi, Muttu, Anil Thakur and Ranvir Sinha also hold 250, 150 and 100 shares respectively.
Immediately after Swamy made these allegations, Indians starting tweeting their opinions, making #BritishBuddu trend on top of social media.
