Sonia and Rahul, who came straight to the AICC office from the court where they were granted bail in the National Herald case, asserted that they will continue to fight and 'not bow down'.

"Today we had appeared before the court with a clean conscience. We did what any law-abiding citizen should do. The laws of the nation applies to everyone without any discrimination. I have no doubt that the truth will come out," Sonia Gandhi told reporters.

Coming down heavily on Modi government, the Congress president said,"The present government is deliberately targeting the opposition and making full use of the state agencies to do so. Nobody is going to be scared from it. We will    continue our fight."

Making a direct attack on the Prime Minister, Rahul Gandhi cited, "Modiji levels false allegations and thinks that the Opposition will bow down, I and Congress party will not succumb."

Referring to the case filed by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, Sonia Gandhi said that she was totally aware of the intention of the people behind the case. "These people have been trying for long to target us. They will not succeed," she asserted. Asserting that Congress will continue to fight for the poor, Rahul said, "We will not budge an inch."

The Gandhis were speaking after they were granted bail in the case based on a private criminal complaint lodged by Swamy against them of cheating, conspiracy and criminal breach of trust.
