Campaigning in Amethi for Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Vadra Saturday called her brother “a visionary like Rajiv Gandhi”.
Listing development schemes brought by Rahul, she said, “Those who criticised Rajiv Gandhi are today criticising Rahul because like my father, even Rahulji has a long term vision.”
Attacking BJP candidate Smriti Irani, Priyanka said, “Ek neta hain, jo Chandni Chowk se ladi thi. Zara Chandni Chowk ke logon se puchhiye, kya madam dobara gayi wahan. (There is a leader, who had contested from Chandni Chowk. Go and ask people of Chandni Chowk if she visited them again).”
Later, Irani tweeted, “Pehle Smt Vadra ye batayein ki Rahulji 10 saal mein kitni baar Amethi aaye. Rishton ke naam pe Amethi ko vikaas se vanchit rakhte hain… (Mrs Vadra should tell that in past 10 years, how many times Rahul came to Amethi. In the name of relations, Amethi has been kept away from development…).”
