Last month BJP president had accused Congress of illegally donating money from Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund to the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation.

“PMNRF, meant to help people in distress, was donating money to Rajiv Gandhi Foundation in UPA years. Who sat on the PMNRF board? Smt. Sonia Gandhi Who chairs RGF? Smt. Sonia Gandhi. Totally reprehensible, disregarding ethics, processes and not bothering about transparency,” BJP president JP Nadda had said.

The BJP also alleged that during the budget speech of 1991, as many as 100-crore of money was allocated to Rajiv Gandhi Foundation.
