Will respond to Sushma Swaraj’s 'revelation' tweet in Parliament, says Rahul Gandhi
New Delhi: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday assured that he would speak in the Parliament over External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's claims that a senior Congress leader was pressing her to give a diplomatic passport to coal scam accused Santosh Bagrodia.
"We will speak in the Parliament," Rahul told the media outside Parliament.
Sushma has said on twitter that she will reveal the name of the Congress leader on the floor of the House today.
On Tuesday, Special CBI judge Bharat Parashar had issued summons to former coal minister of state Santosh Bagrodia and ex-coal secretary H.C. Gupta in a coal block allocation case involving Rajya Sabha member Vijay Darda.
Bagrodia and Gupta have been asked to appear before the court on August 18.
