Sonia Maino was conceived on 9 December 1946 to Stefano and Paola Maino in
Lusiana (in Maini road), a verifiably Cimbrian-talking town around 35 km from
Vicenza in Veneto, Italy. Sonia Gandhi's contribution with Indian open life
started after the death of her mother-in-law and her husband's political race as
In April 1983, BJP has affirmed that she showed up on the voter’s rundown in New
Delhi preceding acquiring Indian citizenship, in negation of Indian law. On this
previous senior Congress pioneer and previous President of India Pranab
Mukherjee said that she gave up her Italian identification to the Italian
Embassy on 27 April 1983.Italian ethnicity law didn't allow double identity
until 1992. Along these lines, by procuring Indian citizenship in 1983, she
would consequently have lost Italian citizenship. After all this, in 1999 she
was elected the Leader of the opposition of 13th Lok Sabha.
Then comes the year 2004, where 2004 general elections were there. In
election she was re-elected by 200,000 vote margin over rivals and she was
widely expected to be the next prime minister of India and according to me she
wants to become prime minister of India but then Dr Subramanian swamy (Chairman
of the Janata Party) arrived. At that time he wrote a letter to Abdul kalam. Dr.
Subramanian Swami has frequently spoken on the topic of the citizenship status
of the Chairman of the UPA, Mrs. Sonia Gandhi, and furthermore that Mrs. Sonia
Gandhi was kept the post from getting PM in 2004 in the wake of composing a
letter to the then President of India, Dr. Kalam, featuring Section 5 of the
1955 Citizenship Act, which he concluded.
But according to facts and Indian Citizenship Act 1955, his letter was
Section 5(1)(c) of Citizenship Act 1955 – According to this section “Persons who
are, or have been, married to citizens of India, and are ordinarily resident in
India and have been so resident for five years immediately before making an
application for registration”
Sonia Gandhi is a Woman and about that, I assume, there is no uncertainty.
Application of Reciprocity Clause to entire Section 5 and not just
According to the 13th paragraph of R Venkateshwara Rao Vs. Union of India and
case judgment it can be understood that Reciprocity doesn’t apply to
Section 5(1) (c) of Citizenship Act, under which Sonia Gandhi has taken
citizenship. And the main thing is that The Reciprocity Clause applied to entire
Section 5 of Citizenship Act 1955, was deleted in Citizenship Amendment Act 2003
by the NDA government.
Some said that The Citizenship Amendment Act 2003 was carried out
in a Hurry
Initially, L K Advani introduced this Bill to the Parliament on May 9, 2003 (Rajya
Sabha). The Bill was then sent to the Parliamentary Standing Committee headed by
Pranab Mukherjee. The Bill was introduced again on December 18, 2003, following
a hole of 7 months in Rajya Sabha and discussed. It was introduced then in Lok
Sabha on December 22, 2003 and debated. Since the second meet of Indian Diaspora
was planned for Delhi on January 9-10, 2004, President of India Dr. A P J Abdul
Kalam gave his consent to the Bill on January 7, 2004.Overall, the cycle of
audit and revision of Citizenship Act appears to have been going on since 1998,
which at last finished in 2003.
