Rahul Gandhi takes cocaine: BJP firebrand leader

BJP MP Subramanian Swamy, a firebrand Hindutva leader, has today stated that Congress President Rahul Gandhi consumes cocaine.  

"He will fail a dope test," a news agency has quoted Swamy as saying.  

The comments have a context.  Rahul had once claimed that 70 percent of Punjab's youngsters have a substance abuse problem.  Such statements have not gone down well with many, especially BJP's supporters. 

Union Minister Harsimrat Badal sensationally said that those who called 70 percent Punjabis 'Nashedis' should undergo the dope test first.  As for Swamy, he has always been a trenchant critic of the Gandhis.
