National Herald Case: Swamy’s plea seeking access to Congress accounts dismissed

In a significant boost for the Congress leadership in the National Herald case, the Patiala House Court on Monday rejected a petition by Dr Subramanian Swamy seeking access to the account books of the grand old party. When approached by exchange4media to seek his reaction to the development, Neelabh Mishra, Editor of National Herald, sought to distance the publication from the proceedings.

“It was about the Congress not Herald so please take a reaction from the Congress,” Mishra said as he indicated lack of awareness regarding the court’s decision. Rajya Sabha MP Vivek Tankha, who represents the Congress from the state of Madhya Pradesh, stated that the court’s decision was a rebuff to Dr Subramanian Swamy.

“He wanted some more documents. The court said that it was not necessary,” Tankha told exchange4media. Being a senior advocate of the Supreme Court, Tankha maintained that the trial was yet to take place.

Politically speaking, the court’s action may have come in as a disappointment for the Bharatiya Janata Party. The BJP has been trying to push the Congress on the back foot by mounting a direct attack on Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in connection with the National Herald case. 

“We respect the court’s judgement and we will see what has to be done,” said Shazia Ilmi. Swamy has been asked to present before the court a list of witnesses during the next hearing of the case on February 10, 2017.
