"The Congress Party and the Congress leadership is ready to take on the political malicious vendetta unleashed by the Modi government and the Bharatiya Janata Party through the agency of Subramanian Swamy," Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala told reporters.

"The political vendetta led by Narendra Modi and Subramanian Swamy is only a small cog in this wheel of conspiracy," he added. Surjewala also cited that the Congress Party won't bow down in front of the political vendetta of Prime Minister Modi, Subramanian Swamy or the BJP.

"We will continue to champion the voice of the people in this country. We will continue to expose the misdeeds of the Modi government. We have complete faith in the judicial system," he said. "We will fight this legal battle in accordance with law and we will fight the political battle both inside Parliament and outside it," he further added.

The Gandhis are two among six people - including other top Congress leaders and Gandhi family associates - accused by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy of trying to illegally acquire real estate worth thousands of crores belonging to the now defunct newspaper National Herald.
