As per reports, Home Ministry has set up a panel to investigate into 3 Gandhi family trusts including Rajiv Gandhi Foundation (RGF), Indira Gandhi Memorial Trust, and Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust. There are allegations that these 3 Gandhi family trusts have violated the legal provisions of the money laundering act, foreign contribution act, and the Income Tax Act.
According to a Home Ministry spokesperson, the committee will be led by Special Director of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will be a part of it.
It should be noted that former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and leaders Priyanka Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are RGF trustees which started in June 1991. Also, Sonia Gandhi is the chairperson of all the trusts. The allegations regarding the same were made by BJP leader JP Nadda during the arguments over Ladakh’s face-off.
Home Ministry to investigate into 3 Gandhi family trusts
According to Nadda, Gandhi’s family is transferring funds from the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund (PMNRF) to their personal accounts and misusing the public money. He also shared the list of donors to back his argument. The list includes SBI, GAIL, Home Affairs Ministry, and the Health Ministry.
Apart from him, Union Minister claimed that RGF did a free trade agreement with China which led to a huge trade deficit. However, according to the Congress party accused BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of sharing a strange bond with China even with borders insecurity.
