New Delhi: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra yesterday attacked BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for his speech in Amethi, saying he had insulted her “martyred” father Rajiv Gandhi and people of the constituency will not forgive him for this.
Priyanka Gandhi, daughter of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, said in a statement that the party’s booth workers in Amethi will give a reply to the “low level politics”.
“They have insulted my martyred father on the soil of Amethi. People of Amethi will never forgive them for this wrong act. My workers at booths will reply to this despicable politics. Each and every booth of Amethi will give a reply,” Priyanka Gandhi said.
Former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi had represented Amethi in parliament. In his speech in Amethi Monday, Modi had attacked the Gandhis and accused the Congress of “arrogance”.
