After Swamy's corruption allegations against Gandhi family, Rahul threatened to hurl a defamation case against him. Sources informed that Rahul Gandhi's office had sent a legal notice to Swamy.
Mocking at the Gandhis and their legal notice, Swamy on Friday, Nov 2 asserted that he is ready to face any legal case and he would stand by his earlier allegations hurled against Sonia and her family members. When he was asked about the notice from Rahul Gandhi's office, Swamy said, "Either Rahul Gandhi sends a letter to me or his lawyer. I will throw either of the papers in the dustbin without reading it. My advice to Rahul Gandhi is grow up, go to the court and file a defamation case. I will fight him there."
In a letter to Swamy, Rahul Gandhi's office said, "Our attention has been drawn to your purported press conference of the afternoon of Nov 1. The allegations made by you are utterly false, entirely baseless and defamatory."
"We are committed to pursuing all legal actions against the scandalous abuse evident in your so-called press conference," said the notice.
The Janata Party supremo earlier on Thursday demanded an investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI) against Congress President Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul. Swamy accused the Gandhis of converting a public firm into a private company and thus grabbing properties worth Rs 1,600 crore illegally. [Read: Swamy's allegations against Sonia and Rahul]
