The notice is based on a representation by BJP MP Subramanian Swamy in which he has brought out that a company named Backops Limited was registered in the United Kingdom in the year 2003. The notice says that Rahul Gandhi was the Director and Secretary of the said company.

The notice also says that in the Company Annual Returns filed on 10th October 2005 and 31st October 2009, Rahul Gandhi had mentioned his nationality as British.

The matter of citizenship had also arisen when representation was made to the Election Commission about Rahul Gandhi’s election affidavit from Amethi. That complaint was however disposed off saying that this is the domain of the Home Ministry and not of the Election Commission.
