YSRCP leader and former MLA Adusumilli Jayaprakash has reportedly announced that he would be approaching court for seeking action against Congress president Sonia Gandhi for residing in India for a decade in the past from 1975-83 without applying for citizenship.
The leader reportedly accused that Sonia married Rajiv Gandhi in the year 1968 and lived with his family in India but didn’t secure the citizenship till 1983 despite being eligible for attaining Indian nationality. Sources say this move from Jayaprakash is actually a thought that has come from Jagan.
The Citizenship Act (Section 5) 1955 states that people who reside in India with valid permission for 8 years are eligible for citizenship. Jayaprakash is demanding prosecution of Sonia Gandhi on grounds of illegally residing in the country! If the petition gets accepted then it is going to be an interesting issue.
