"The Congress condemns the allegations of Swamy against Rahul's British citizenship. I am surprised at the importance being given to his statements. You will not find a liar bigger than him. Earlier also he has levelled bogus charges, but what proofs does he have in support of these allegations?" Singh told reporters here.

On the demand by some Congress leaders to hand over the reins of the party to Rahul after its good show in Bihar Assembly elections, the 68-year-old Rajya Sabha MP, without expressing his personal opinion, said, "This decision should be left to Congress president Sonia Gandhi."

Swamy had yesterday alleged that Rahul claimed himself to be a British national before authorities there and demanded that he be stripped of Indian citizenship and Lok Sabha membership.

Circulating copies of documents extracted purportedly from the company law authorities of Britain, he had said that Gandhi had declared himself as a British national in documents related to a now-dissolved company. This, he said in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is a violation of constitutional provisions and demanded that action be taken against Rahul.
