What is the National Herald Case?
In the year 1938, Pandit Nehru started a news paper named National Herald. The ownership of this news paper was with Associated Journals Limited ie AGL. But after 70 years in 2008, the newspaper had to be closed due to losses. It is alleged that with the consent of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, a loan of 90 crores was given to AGL from Congress funds. Later, Sonia and Rahul Gandhi took over the property of this newspaper by forming a company named Young India. Apart from Sonia and Rahul, Motilal Vora and Oscar Fernandes also had stake in Young India. Both died. In 2012, a petition was filed on behalf of Subramanian Swamy, questioning the entire alleged deal. In the year 2014, summons were issued against Sonia and Rahul from the court. After this ED is investigating in this matter. At the same time, in the year 2015, both the leaders have also been granted bail from Delhi’s Patiala House Court. At the same time, in the year 2016, the Supreme Court allowed both the leaders not to appear in person during the hearing in the court but did not close the case.
