Charges must be substantiated that the India Foundation was involved in a case of conflict, Shaurya Doval, son of National Security Advisor, Ajit Doval said.
He said that the news portal which carried the news about the foundation of which he is a director must substantiate the charges either in a court of law or before the people. The statements were made to a private news channel.
The accusations about our foundation, in political debates people can say anything what they want. That's democracy, but the evidence of that gets proved in the court. All those who make accusations must logically pursue them in the court of law and substantiate it or if that's not the way... that if you are fighting a perception battle, then take it out to the people and prove to the people the perception, he also said.
The Wire had reported that India Foundation, which has four senior Union ministers on its board as directors, was using its proximity with the government for lobbying.
