According to Subramanian Swamy, Rahul Gandhi committed perjury by telling a lie in the nomination papers for Lok Sabha that he owned no shares when he actually owned three lakh shares of the AJPL. Swamy has written a letter in this regard to the Chief Election Commissioner on Wednesday. The letter stated that Rahul, an MP from Amethi, misrepresented facts in his affidavit during the 2009 LS elections by wrongly stating that he has no shares and debentures in companies. This is a blatant lie. A list of AJPL shareholders, as on September 30, 2008, submitted to the Registrar of Companies (RoC), said Rahul owned more than three lakh shares in the company. The details of his shareholding pattern are, Rahul owns 6,154 preference shares and 2,62,411 ordinary shares on behalf of Rameshwar Thakur and Trustees, who are authorised attorney of Janahit Trust, a registered public trust. Swamy said Rahul also held 47,513 ordinary shares on behalf of Ratan Deep Trust, whose authorised signatory is attorney R D Pradhan, former home secretary. Swamy said the latest list of shareholders of 2011 of the company states that Rahul is still a shareholder. Last year, his 2,62,411 shares were transferred to his sister, while he retained 47,513 shares.
