In an obvious response to the Centre organising an inter-ministerial committee to probe the fundings of Rajiv Gandhi Foundation (RGF), Congress chief Rahul Gandhi Wednesday stated those that “fight for the truth have no price and cannot be intimidated”.
The inter-ministerial committee will probe the fundings of RGF, Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust, and Indira Gandhi Memorial Trust. Facing criticism from the Congress over its dealing with of the current border standoff with China, the BJP had alleged that the RGF used to receive funds from the embassy of the People’s Republic of China.
Taking to Twitter, Gandhi stated, “Mr Modi believes the world is like him. He thinks every one has a price or can be intimidated. He will never understand that those who fight for the truth have no price and cannot be intimidated.”
Mr Modi believes the world is like him. He thinks each one has a worth or may be intimidated.
He won’t ever perceive that those that battle for the reality don’t have any worth and can’t be intimidated.

Earlier, the Congress issued an announcement, the place it known as the probe a “blind witch-hunt” mission by a “panicked Modi government”. “This wild and insidious hatred of the BJP of Congress leadership unfolds every day in an embarrasing and uglier fashion,” AICC Communications in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala stated within the assertion.
He stated the federal government, which is going through a barrage of questions on border safety, dealing with of Covid-19 disaster, and financial stress, had “fallen back on a devious hounding of those exposing its ineptitude by ordering a wholly vicious and vengeful investigation of the Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust and Indira Gandhi Memorial Trust”.
In an announcement, the MHA stated on Wednesday, “MHA sets up an inter-ministerial committee to coordinate investigations into violation of various legal provisions of PMLA, Income Tax Act, FCRA, etc by Rajiv Gandhi Foundation, Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust & Indira Gandhi Memorial Trust. Spl. Dir of ED will head the committee.”
Sources stated the committee will examine all sources of funds, together with these acquired from international international locations, in these organisations and see in the event that they adhered to laid down legal guidelines and guidelines. Sources stated the committee will first name for all related paperwork with regard to probe from these organisations after which, if the necessity arises, name workplace bearers for questioning.
