Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy said Congress President Rahul Gandhi would fail the dope test prescribed by the Punjab government, alleging that he consumes cocaine.
Swamy’s remark came after Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal said the leaders calling Punjabis ‘Nashedis’ (Drug Addicts) should undergo the prescribed dope test first.’The person Harsimrat Kaur is thinking of is Rahul Gandhi. Certainly, Rahul will fail the dope test as he takes cocaine,’ Swamy told ANI.
