Nagpur, Nov 13 : Former RSS spokesman M G alias Baburao Vaidya today said UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi should file a defamation suit against former RSS chief K S Sudarshan for making derogatory remarks against her.
"Sonia Gandhi should not take the derogatory remarks against her lightly but initiate legal action, be it criminal defamation or civil defamation," Vaidya told PTI.
Since the charges of serious nature are not against Congress party or the UPA government but against the individual (Gandhi), she should knock the doors of a court of law, Vaidya said.
"The allegations are of serious nature since Sudarshan accused her of being an agent of US intelligence agency CIA. If Gandhi does not go to court, the charges will remain on record and will not be wiped out. Let the court decide about the allegations," Vaidya, also a former editor of a local Marathi daily, said.
On Sudarshan's comments on the birth circumstances of Sonia Gandhi, Vaidya said they were uncalled for. He said street demonstrations and burning Sudarshan's effigies will not do but the best option is dragging him to court.
"Sudarshan's statement is not justifiable and therefore the RSS leadership has apologised and distanced itself from the comments," Vaidya said. PTI
