Days after Priyanka Vadra accused Narendra Modi of resorting to “neech rajniti (low-level politics)”, Congress president Sonia Gandhi levelled a similar charge against the BJP PM candidate and slammed him for “insulting” former PM Rajiv Gandhi.
Addressing a rally in Kushinagar in favour of Congress sitting MP and party candidate R P N Singh, Sonia invoked former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee and said he had respected the dignity of the chair. However, leaders like Modi insulted former PM Rajiv Gandhi even 23 years after his martyrdom, Sonia added.
“If we do not call this “neech”, then what else should we call it?” she said. She added that any person who dreams of becoming PM should understand the rich culture of the country first and that such “neech rajniti” does not suit anyone.

She also warned the gathering of the repercussions a person like Modi coming to power at the Centre.
Modi, in his rally in Amethi, had said Rajiv Gandhi had practiced the politics of anger and had insulted the then CM of Andhra Pradesh publicly.
Armed with data, Sonia also raised questions about the “Gujarat model” of development. She said a large number of women and children are malnourished in the state and about 40 per cent of rural areas do not get water for drinking and irrigation.
