BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra on Sunday addressed a press conference and raised questions about Rahul Gandhi’s source of income. In a recent report, OpIndia had revealed Rahul’s seemingly dubious dealings and his rapidly increasing assets.

Speaking to the media, Sambit Patra asked questions regarding Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s suspected source of income earned through dubious deals involving scam accused companies. Mentioning it to as ‘Assets of a Non-Performing Asset’, Sambit Patra referred to the OpIndia report and asked how his income increased from Rs 55,38,123 in 2004, to over Rs. 2 crores in 2009 and finally, over Rs 9 crores in 2014.

“The people and the BJP party will keep a telescopic view on the nomination filed by the Congress President Rahul Gandhi as his income has constantly increased since 2004. Rahul Gandhi has increased his assets using four different ways, first through HL Pahwa, secondly through his farmhouse, third with the help of 2G scam accused Unitech and lastly Rahul Gandhi using a London based firm to increase his assets,” said Sambit Patra.

Sambit Patra further accused that Rahul Gandhi has increased his assets from profiteering from scams, dubious land deals, links with arms dealers and hiding facts from election affidavits. Rahul Gandhi is not a professional, the only way Rahul Gandhi earns is through the salary that he draws as a Member of Parliament, said Patra while questioning Rahul Gandhi on his the source of income.

Patra also mentioned that Rahul Gandhi had escaped incomes of Rs. 155 crores through AJL for which, the IT department had slapped Rs. 100 crores tax notice on Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi.

Sambit Patra added the Rahul Gandhi had dubious deals with HL Pahwa and purchased the land at a measly price of Rs. 26,47,000. He mentioned that the land purchase was mentioned in his election affidavit of 2009, while HL Pahwa himself has several dubious connections. OpIndia had broken the story of Rahul Gandhi’s dubious land deal with HL Pahwa, the saga of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Robert Vadra purchasing land for Pahwa and then selling it back to him at an inflated price, and Rahul’s links to arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari.

Patra said that the second source of income was from Gandhi Parivar’s links to FTIL, a company that was at the heart of the NSEL scam. “Gandhi Parivar is the only parivar in the country which does not do anything but earns several crores of money,” alleged Patra.

The OpIndia report had mentioned about irregularities in renting out this farmhouse to NSEL scam accused Financial Technologies (India) Ltd. (FTIL), which had paid an interest-free deposit of Rs 40.20 lakh vide two separate cheques of Rs 20.10 lakh each respectively to Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi.

Sambit Patra went on to accuse Rahul Gandhi of suspicious possession of two commercial properties in October 2010, one worth Rs. 1.44 crores and the other Rs. 5.36 crores, owned by 2G scam accused company Unitech.

Patra mentioned exact allegations reported by OpIndia and mentioned that Rahul Gandhi had bought a property worth 7 crores but had only made an advance payment of a little over 4 crores while also receiving interest income during Financial Year 2010-11 to Financial Year 2014-15 on the deposit with Unitech Ltd.

“In an affidavit filed for the Lok Sabha Elections in 2004, Rahul Gandhi mentions a property he owned of Backops Limited and three of its European accounts, two of which were with HSBC-UK. The firm was reportedly dissolved in 2009,” added Patra.

Patra also mentioned OpIndia report stating, “According to the affidavit, the Congress President also owned 83% in Backops Services. It was registered at the Registrar of Companies, New Delhi. According to a Data Services website, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Rahul’s sister, was one of the directors in the firm. The firm last filed its balance sheet on the 31st of March, 2010. Intriguingly, although the firm is mentioned in his 2004 affidavit, it doesn’t find any mention in his 2009 election affidavit. Therefore, the question arises, what happened to the 83% stake that Rahul Gandhi had in the firm?”

The BJP party further said that Rahul Gandhi and Robert Vadra are synonyms as both operate with same operanda of dubious land deals, lies in election affidavits. Robert Vadra has learnt this art from Congress President Rahul Gandhi itself, accused the BJP.
