Rahul GandhiMumbai: A local court in Bhiwandi has issued summons to Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for his comments on the Rashtriya Swyamsevak Sangh (RSS) during an election rally in the area during the Lok Sabha elections this year.

An RSS worker Rajesh Kunte had filed a case on March 18. Gandhi, 44, had told supporters in an election rally on March 6 that the RSS had a role to play in Mahatma Gandhi's assassination in 1948.

Gandhi had said that the RSS was behind Mahatma Gandhi's assassination and Sardar Patel had written about it as well. The court had asked for a police report and after studying the report the court summoned Gandhi on October 7.

Maharashtra goes to poll in a few months and Gandhi's party, which has been in power for 15 years in alliance with the NCP, faces a tough challenge from the saffron combine of the BJP and the Shiv Sena.

Last month, Gandhi and his mother, Congress President Sonia Gandhi, the top two leaders of the Congress, were asked to appear in a Delhi court on August 7 in a case. The case was filed by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy claiming that they broke the law to grab properties in Delhi, including the office of the National Herald, a newspaper that was set up in 1938 by Jawaharlal Nehru. The paper closed down in 2008.
