Subramanian SwamyBJP leader Subramanian Swamy has accused Congress president Sonia Gandhi of possessing three secret foreign bank accounts and that she has recently withdrawn $10 billion from a bank based in Vatican. The move comes days after Swamy accused Sonia’s son-in-law Robert Vadra of involvement in a land deal in Delhi.

Swamy was in Guwahati campaigning for the BJP where he made such revelation while addressing a Press conference.

“Sonia Gandhi has three accounts in foreign banks and her total amounts in these three secret bank accounts are 1.5 lakh crore. Recently she had withdrawn $10 billion from a Vatican-based bank,” said Swamy.

Sonia-G & Rahul BabaAs per a report published in Hindustan Times, Swamy said that Sonia withdrew the amount from a Vatican bank after the new Pope declared that account must disclose the name of the holder. Swamy said the three banks in which Sonia Gandhi allegedly has accounts are one in Vatican [IOR], Sarasin Bank in Basel in Switzerland, and Pictet Bank in Zurich.

He said that Rs 120 lakh crore of the country has been kept in foreign banks by a few individuals and if the BJP is voted to power, it would bring back all these amounts from foreign banks.

Earlier, Swamy wrote to the President demanding an inquiry by the Central Vigilance Commission and probe by CBI into the alleged involvement of Robert Vadra in a major DLF land deal in the national capital.

Swamy alleged that Vadra used his political influence to get a 23-acre property worth more than Rs 20,000 crore near Rashtrapati Bhavan allotted to DLF for just Rs 65 crore. DLF is proposing to develop high-end apartments, since its has secured permission for a housing complex.

Robert Vadra“It is obvious that without political influence this change in land use breaching national security and providing windfall profits would not have been possible,” Swamy said in his letter to the President.

Swamy said in some companies floated by Vadra in recent times, Sonia Gandhi's Bank Accounts“DLF executive Amit Mehta was the director.” In light of the allegations, Swamy appealed, “Please take necessary steps including referring this letter to the Chief Vigilance Commissioner for a probe and subsequent CBI investigation.”

According to Swamy, Vadra floated six companies in June-August 2012. “During this period, UPA Government had allotted Delhi’s most prime property to DLF group,” he alleged. Vadra is the managing director of all the newly-floated six companies. – Niti Central, 19 April 2014

  1. For all of Dr Swamy’s loud rhetoric, we can be sure that Sonia-G and her son Rahul will never be prosecuted.

    They are absolutely safe with the Modi government.

    The denizens of Dilli always look after each other!

    And if the SIT does have the audacity to break protocol and question her, Sonia-G will say that she is an Italian citizen and the accounts—if they are not numbered accounts—are in the name of Edvige Antonia Albina Màino.

    Therefore her stash abroad is none of India’s business!

    Watch and see if this dumb editor isn’t right!
