Uttar Pradesh: Revealing Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s real name, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that the country has been fooled with Rahul Gandhi’s name because his real name in Britain and Italy is Raul Vinci. He also stated that he is astonished with the fact that Congress is committing this sin of fooling the nation.
Speaking at a poll meeting in Ghatampur of Kanpur Dehat, he stated: “The ‘naamdar’ of Congress you know as Rahul Gandhi… In reality, he is not Rahul Gandhi. The country has been fooled with this name. His name is Raul Vinci. I am astonished that the Congress is committing this sin of fooling the nation. The real names of Rahul and Priyanka should come before people.”
“In Britain and Italy he is Raul Vinci and in India becomes Rahul Gandhi with fake name,” he alleged.
Amethi Returning Officer Ram Manohar Mishra had ordered the postponement of scrutiny of Gandhi’s nomination papers to April 22 after Lal filed the complaint.
One of the issues Lal had raised in the complaint was on the “basis of a certificate of incorporation of a company registered in the UK wherein he (Gandhi) has declared himself a UK citizen Raul Vinci”.
Seizing on the opportunity to attack Gandhi, the BJP also alleged on Saturday that the Congress chief had said that he did M Phil in development economics from Cambridge University, but inquiries show that one ‘Raul Vinci’ and not Rahul Gandhi got the degree that particular year.
