Amethi will never forgive Narendra Modi for insulting my ‘martyred’ father: Priyanka Gandhi

"They have insulted my martyred father on the soil of Amethi. People of Amethi will never forgive them for this act."

Priyanka Gandhi hit out at Narendra Modi saying he has insulted her “martyred” father Rajiv Gandhi during his speech in Amethi and accused the BJP prime ministerial candidate of indulging in “low-level” politics.

Priyanka said, “They have insulted my martyred father on the soil of Amethi. People of Amethi will never forgive them for this act. Workers in Amethi will reply to their low-level politics. There will be reply from each of the booths.”

Earlier during an election rally in support of BJP candidate Smriti Irani, Modi accused Congress of practicing politics of “arrogance” and said Rajiv Gandhi, when he was Congress General Secretary, had once publicly “abused” and “humiliated” the then Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister T Anjaiah at an airport. Anjaiah was chief minister between 1980 and 1982.

    Mr Modi told only the truth. Mr Rajiv insulted the then AP Chief minister. He did not speak any thing bad of Mr Rajiv. .Amethi voters should wake up and give a ing reply to this arrogant family. This family should be politically isolated
