Swamy seeks discussion on Mahatma Gandhi's assassination

New Delhi: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Tuesday demanded a discussion on Mahatma Gandhi's assassination, saying no autopsy was conducted on the body. Raising the issue in the Rajya Sabha amid protests from the Congress, Swamy said this must be debated as "parliamentarians" were making comments on it and had to be pulled up by the Supreme Court. "Recently the Narendra Modi government has placed most files related to the assassination in the National Archives. I had a chance to go through them. "A lot of comments are being made including by parliamentarians. The Supreme Court has had to pull them up and give them a warning," he said. The Supreme Court recently pulled up Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi over his "collective denunciation" of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and said he may have to face trial for alleging that the RSS killed Mahatma Gandhi. As Congress members protested that no names should be taken, Swamy replied: "I will only name Mahatma Gandhi. I won't take any other Gandhi's name."
