Hitting back at BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Priyanka Vadra on Monday accused him of “insulting” her “martyred” father Rajiv Gandhi and said he would get a befitting reply from “each and every booth” of Amethi.

“Inhone Amethi ki dharti pe mere shaheed pitaa ka apmaan kiya hai, Amethi ki janta is harkat ko kabhi maaf nahi karegi. Inki neech rajniti ka jawaab mere booth ke karyakartaa denge….Amethi ke ek ek booth se jawaab aayega…(He has insulted my martyred father on Amethi’s soil. The people of Amethi will never forgive him for this. My booth-level workers in Amethi will reply to his low-level politics. There will be a reply from each and every booth of Amethi),” she said.

    Dear PV. Do not sing song of your father. We do not want to speak bad about a dead person. But he was not an angel. He had blood of 3,000 Sikh childresn, women and men on his hands and his body as well.

      Poo! poo! what is this woman talking about. Rajiv was no saint at all. He got killed by his own follies. Any one is called "martyre" when he has died upholding bis ideology and beliefs! If some one dies due to his erroneous policies , then he is not called a martyre

              "Sardar Sanat Singh saluja"..what a nice pseudonym used by the BJP Pr machinery working in overdrive to hit each and every post on the web and start insulting the not only the Congress , but sadly, some of the greatest Leaders our nation has had. To those boys in the BP computer room, I would like to suggest that you think.reflect before typing whatever material into the web.

                  let us not bring in the legacies of the past to emotionally blackmail the innocent voters of amethi. speak of what better their lives have become during the last ten years and seek votes on practical issues rather than misleading the voters

By crying again and again ru justifying the peoples who were hiding inside the golden temple or killing the Iron Lady of India. At end the country has lost a great administrator. You peoples digged the pit and you all fell into it. Nobody to blamed for it!!!!

                          Priyankaji. Do you think that you are politically knowledgeable and experienced to attack Modi? Modi is governing one of our States for the consecutive 1 5 years.

                              I understand the silence of Corrupt CONgress on the Anti-sikh riots in 1984 !!! But what I do not understand is the silence of BJP on these riots .....

                                How did Narendra Modi insult Rajeev hi? Priyanka is shamelessly exploiting her dead father's memory.

                                  India wont forgive your family for insulting all the Indians - bringing shame to India through encouraging corruption, sucking out public funds, ual attacks on women and children, dividing the country on religion and spreading hatred, making a joke of the law and justice system, criminalisation of the Parliament and emblies, giving out India's land to China, Pak, and Bangla... list of your crimes is endless.

Or it is the congress party only who decorated Mr.Rajiv hi as martyr.....there are hundreds of soldiers who fought for country and killed but none of you anytime recall them but according to you people only his are martyr.....its really a shame that we live in such a democratic nation where there is no democracy at all.......

                                      Sour grapes Mrs. Vadra? Why do you not speak of welfare, development etc., why must you always harp back on your father? Would that give employment, bring drinking water, feed the hungry, provide for the needy? Oh, I'm sorry, that's not an issue to you at all. Sorry.

                                        It will be better for this family to leave the politics forever. Amethi and Rae Barely is gone to BJP now.

                                          A great man and one of the greatest leaders we ever had. He introduced the w IT industry in India in the 80s. He was asinated by LTTE extremists for simply doing his job as a leader of india. He lost his life because he was the Indian PM. This sacrifice is something most people are too dim-witted and selfish to understand. Whatever some trolls might say here, is plain stupid and false propoa. I remember the tears of the common man when he was asinated, most of you were'nt old enough then. This was a man who was loved so much by the people that you cant understand. Wish he was still alive. Great man. RIP

                                            Miss you Shri Rajiv hi, India would have been miles ahead if you were with us today. May your dreams for India come true.... Truly a legend, a man who had a future for India. A man who loved people, a man who had a vision. I thank you for all that you have done for India
