New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has been called again by the ED for questioning yesterday. But Rahul Gandhi has appealed to postpone the inquiry. It has been told from their side that the inquiry should be postponed till Monday. Till now ED has not given any reply on this demand.
Rahul Gandhi has been questioned for three days in the National Herald case. On Wednesday too, the ED had questioned him for more than 10 hours. It was said that he would have to come to the ED office again on Friday. He was given a day’s rest. But Congress leaders now want to come for questioning on Monday instead of Friday. The ED has been informed about this on his behalf. Whether their appeal is accepted or rejected, it will be clear in some time.
By the way, why Rahul Gandhi wants to postpone the inquiry, it is not clear yet. No reason has been given to the ED in this regard from their side. Talking about the interrogation of three days, the ED has asked many questions to the Congress leader. Many questions have also been raised about that Dotex company of Kolkata. It is being said about that company that it had given a loan of one crore rupees to Young India in the year 2010. BJP is alleging that Young India never repaid that loan.
But Rahul does not have a clear answer to the questions being asked about that company. This information is also coming out that Rahul Gandhi is giving the same answers to many other questions. Because of this the process of inquiry is getting long and slow. Earlier, Rahul wanted this inquiry to be over by Tuesday, but the ED has a long list of questions which are not over yet.
