Supreme Court today adjourned by a week the hearing of a petition challenging the Indian citizenship of Congress President Sonia Gandhi. The petition filed by Rashtriya Mukti Morcha through its President Ravinder Kumar has contended that since Sonia Gandhi is not an Indian citizen by birth and is only a naturalised citizen , she cannot hold any constitutional post in the country. The hearing was adjourned at the request of the petitioner. The petition was earlier dismmissed by Delhi High Court. UNI SC SY RP1924 NNNN
Rahul Gandhi largest beneficiary of Commonwealth Games Bribe: Dr. Swamy
POSTED BY RP_SINGH ON 25 AUGUST 2010
But surprisingly neither any Congress man dared to file a defamation case against Dr. Swany and everyone is mum including the “secular” press of India.
This is a must read for all patriotic Indians.
Dr. Swamy’s statement reads:
While abroad recently I was informed by my reliable sources that of the Rs.40000 crores spent to date on Commonwealth Games preparations, about Rs.15000 crores have gone as bribes under cover of payments to consultants and contractors. The recipient of the largest share of the bribe delivered in London is Rahul Gandhi, a Congress MP and son of Sonia Gandhi. In London Mr.Gandhi is known under an alias as Raul Vinci. The Indian High Commission employee in London who has denied his letter of recommendation now, acts as a valet for Mr.Gandhi whenever he visits London, which is at least once a month. Mr.Gandhi is accompanied by his undeclared wife, Colombian girl Veronique.
The plan of UPA to protect Mr.Gandhi from expose and prosecution in this CWG scam is to blame it all on Suresh Kalmadi and Shiela Dikshit. The Prime Minister must show boldness now because corruption at the public person level has attained Himalayan heights bringing disgrace to the nation and the economy performing below our potential.
I demand therefore constituting an open Commission of Inquiry under a sitting Supreme Court judge with CBI as it’s investigating arm. The public and whistle blowers should be invited to depose before Commission.
Here is the proof!

Low voter turnout a threat to India’s democracy’
Elections are the biggest source of corruption in the country. When a candidate spends Rs. 5 crore to Rs.10 crore for getting elected, the first thing he does is call officials and ask them how they’re going to help him recover his expenditure.
This was stated by Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) S.Y. Quraishi here on Monday.
Mr. Quraishi was speaking at a special meeting called to ask for the media’s help to boost voter awareness.
The Election Commission had made significant progress in making the electoral process more transparent, but only a vigilant electorate could stamp out corruption, he noted.
Mr. Quraishi said low voter turnout had emerged as a fundamental threat to the country’s democracy. “If 30 per cent of people vote and one of them wins with 12 per cent of that, both the quality of the representation and the legitimacy of governance will suffer.”
To boost voter participation, the Commission had taken slew of measures such as appointment of community-based booth liaison officers, hand-delivery of voter slips prior to the election day and running of awareness campaigns in the media, he said.
These measures had helped bring about a record voter turnout of 84 per cent in Tamil Nadu and ensured a steady improvement in electoral participation across the last seven elections.
“I am particularly pleased we have succeeded in making sure more women than ever are voting. In Bihar, there were more women voters than men. We have also added 3.8 crore in the 18-19 age-group to the electoral rolls through special campaigns, which means about 35 per cent of this age-group are now registered to vote,” he said.
However, Mr. Quraishi pointed out that voters in most cities other than Kolkata and Chennai remained apathetic. “People in urban areas incessantly complain about how corrupt their politicians are, but won’t queue up to vote and choose better ones,” he added.
Mumbai ,Feb. 7: Maharashtra minister Ramesh Bagwe said that he has no remorse for picking up the shoes of Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi, as Rahul was his idol, his leader and he had great respect for his leader. However, Mr Bagwe said that the reason why he picked up the shoes was different, he did his job as a home minister, concerned about the security of the VIP. “I have great respect for Rahul. He is my idol. If I pick up his shoes, I have not committed any crime, ” Mr Bagwe said. He added that his concern was that someone might have put something in the shoes, if they were left behind and everyone had gone towards Dr Ambedkar’s statue where Rahul was to offer flowers. “In our culture we touch the feet of warkaris with respe-ct as they visit the God at Pandharpur, for they have faith in God and his devotees, then what was so wrong in me picking up the shoes?” asked the minister.
Mr Bagwe stooped low enough picking up Rahul’s shoes at Ramabai Nagar on Friday, in the presence of CM Ashok Chavan, Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee chief Mr Man-ikrao Thackeray and Mumbai Region Congress Committee chief Mr Kripashan-kar Singh. Mr Bagwe might have done that to show his integrity as a Congressman towards the Gandhi family, but the waiting media having witnessed the sequence of events targeted him.Even the Shiv Sena had a point to speak about. The party’s executive president Uddhav Thackeray in Pune said that while the chappals from Pune were famous once upon a time, now Puneite picks up Delhi’s shoes, and it was unfortunate that a person who takes pride in picking up the shoes was born in Pune. The media kept on jeering Mr Bagwe as well as the chief minister. Even as there were reports in the media linking the incident to that of Mr Chavan’s father Shankarrao Chavan picking up Rahul’s uncle Sanjay Gandhi’s shoes, there was no reaction from either the CM or the MPCC and the MRCC chiefs.However, haunted by the media, Mr Bagwe on Sunday reacted to the building pressure. He said that he didn’t consider himself as someone extraordinary for being a minister for state.
