Revanth Reddy earlier had said that the ED notices against party leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi were nothing but revenge politics by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah, who are experts in “diversion politics to hide their failures.”

The National Herald case has been lodged against various Congress leaders including Gandhis for allegedly misappropriating the National Herald fund. Initially, the case was lodged with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the ED case is on the basis of the CBI’s case.
