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.
