Speaking to reporters here, Swamy, the complainant in the National Herald case, said that the Congress government led by Rao had provided 'Z' category security to him. That was later curtailed by the previous UPA government and made applicable only in a few states, he added.

"When our (BJP) government came, they said this is injustice and again provided me the security that had been given to me during Rao's tenure," he said. "Now I don't know if they (Congress) think Narasimha Rao was a BJP man," Swamy added.

Meanwhile, as Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, party Vice President Rahul Gandhi and others appeared in court today in the Herald case, Swamy criticised the party and claimed it is afraid that it is losing the case and, hence, there were the 'processions and gatherings' of its workers.

"I tell Congress, that is why your name is spoiled... you are losing this case, that is why you are doing all this. If you are winning, then go smiling to court," he added.
