According to sources, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge was interviewed by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the National Herald Corruption Case.

The 79-year-old Rajya Sabha leader, a fervent Bharatiya Janata Party critic, was Summoned to appear before the officials.

His statement will be recorded in accordance with the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) because the agency wishes to better understand some issues in the Investigation.

The Investigation into the National Herald Corruption Case, which is linked to the Congress and the Gandhi’s, has been ongoing for years.

Cheating, Conspiracy, and Criminal Breach of trust have all been Accused in the acquisition of Associated Journals Limited (AJL) by Young Indian Pvt. Ltd. (YI).

The Associated Journals Limited published the National Herald, which was founded by former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. The daily was said to be a mouthpiece for Congress.

In 2010, the Associated Journals Limited was taken over by a newly floated Company called Young Indian Private Limited, which had Suman Dubey and technocrat Sam Pitroda as Directors, both of whom were Gandhi supporters.

Motilal Vora, All India Congress Committee General Secretary Oscar Fernandes, Suman Dubey, Sam Pitroda, and Young Indian Pvt. Ltd. and the Gandhi’s were among the seven Accused in the Case.

Meanwhile, Kharge has been relentless in his criticism of the Bhartiya Janta Party on a variety of issues.

“In this battle against the Bhartiya Janta Party, all opposition parties must work together to see the Bhartiya Janta Party defeated so that people can get some relief,” the Senior Congress leader.
