Rajya Sabha adjourned till tomorrow

New Delhi, Dec.10 : The Rajya Sabha has been adjourned till tomorrow as the Congress members continued to protest against the government on the National Herald issue.

Raising slogans against the ruling dispensation, the Congress leaders alleged that dictatorship on part of the government would not be accepted.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi have been asked to appear in a Delhi Court on December 19 in connection with this case.

The summons were issued to them on a criminal complaint lodged by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy for alleged cheating and misappropriation of funds in acquiring ownership of now-defunct daily National Herald.

The Congress leaders own a stake as directors in YIL, registered as a charitable company, as per the complaint.

The complaint alleged corruption in the assigning of loan worth Rs. 90.25 crore owed to the Congress by Associated Journals Limited (AJL), publisher of the National Herald, to YIL for Rs. 50 lakh.(ANI)
