Congress Protest: Priyanka Gandhi called Rahul Gandhi the son of a martyr and said that he is being insulted. In the address, Priyanka Gandhi also told the story of 32 years related to her family.
Priyanka Gandhi Statement: Congress (Congress) is doing Sankalp Satyagraha at Raj Ghat in Delhi today after Rahul Gandhi lost his membership of Parliament. During this, while addressing the workers, Priyanka Gandhi said that it was 32 years ago, my father’s funeral procession was leaving from Teen Murti Bhavan. I was in the car with my mother and brother. The convoy went on for a while, then Rahul said I want to get down, but the mother refused. I said let the mother get down. He got down from the car and reached Raj Ghat here walking on foot in the hot sun. That picture is still in my mind that the dead body of my martyr father reached here in this tricolor. Following him, my brother reached here. One of your chief ministers says that Rahul Gandhi doesn’t even know who his father is?
- How much will you insult a man?
Priyanka Gandhi further said that you say why don’t you use the name Nehru? Till today we remained silent, you kept insulting our family. My brother hugged PM Modi in the Parliament and said that I have no hatred for you. How much will you insult a man? Lord Ram went to exile for his family, Pandavas fought for their family, so were they familyists? My family has irrigated the soil of this country with its blood.
- Raised the issue of gas cylinder price
Priyanka Gandhi said that sometimes I feel what the public is thinking, all your property is being looted, it is your property. You are paying Rs 1000 for gas. What did Rahul Gandhi do, he only asked two questions and what do the arrogant do, they try to suppress the one who asks the question. Why are they all involved in saving a man? Who is this Adani, who starts saving him as soon as his name comes up. Why is there so much inflation and unemployment? If you can do such big work, then you cannot pay the price of a gas cylinder. We have to think seriously.
- You are only talking about saving democracy
He further said that a man walked from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, with the spirit of equality and unity in his heart. Today all your leaders are saying that Rahul has insulted the country. Insulted a class. Tell me, will the man who is walking from Kashmir to Kanyakumari do this? This is not a matter of Rahul Gandhi, it is a matter of the whole country. We are only talking about saving democracy. Rahul Gandhi has come after studying from the 2 biggest institutions of the world. You call him Pappu. When he went on a journey, he came to know that this Pappu is not there at all. Lakhs of people are connecting with this.
Priyanka Gandhi said that it is funny that the person who filed a complaint against Rahul last year went to the court and himself asked to put a stay on this case. When was the stay lifted when Rahul Gandhi raised the issue of Adani in Parliament. File a case against me, send me to jail too, it is an old tradition of this country. It is an old tradition of Hinduism that the public answers the arrogant king. Today is the day when everything will start to change.
Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi said that I want to tell the media colleagues that there is so much pressure on you, but wake up. When you became a journalist, it must have been in your heart that I will bring out the truth. Today this country is in danger, all the wealth of this country is being handed over to one man. Standing near the tomb of Mahatma Gandhi, I remind you that how many have shed their blood for the freedom of this country. Open your eyes my countrymen. Do not be afraid in the words of Rahul Gandhi.
