A grumbling from BJP MP Subramanian Swamy says the Congress president's nationality was pronounced as British in archives identified with a U.K. organization that he was a chief in.
The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), following up on a protest from BJP MP Subramanian Swamy, has asked Congress president Rahul Gandhi to give the "genuine position" of his citizenship.

"You are mentioned to suggest the truthful position in the issue to this Ministry inside a fortnight of the receipt of this correspondence," the letter expressed.
As indicated by an MHA official, the grievance goes back to 2015.
