Shanti Bhushan to enter National Herald battle

Eminent lawyer Shanti Bhushan said he will intervene in the “National Herald” case and described as illegal the transfer of shares to Young Indian Limited, the company controlled by Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.

Bhushan’s entry may pose problems to the Congress as, according to his claims, he has inherited shares in the company which owns the daily founded by Jawaharlal Nehru.
The senior advocate told an electronic news agency on Friday that his father had 300 shares in the Associated Journals Limited (the company formed by the Congress party to run “National Herald”). Shanti Bhushan, a former law minister, said he was contacting legal heirs of the shares his father had owned.

He will fight on behalf of them.“As Associated Journals is concerned, this company had been formed by a large number of patriotic people which includes my father also. And, therefore, they have the right to decide on how this company should be run,” he said.

“All these facts have to be ascertained after looking at the records of the Company and Registrar of Companies. We will have to get signatures of all the heirs because when my father died, he left a widow and 10 children,” Bhushan said.
