Amethi, Apr 12 UNI | 3 months ago

Rahul Gandhi today affirmed that the attack on Narendra Modi over his marital status was not an infringement on the personal domain.

'Congress is not making any personal attack on Mr Modi instead putting up a fact before the world,' the party No.2 said after filing nomination from Amethi parliamentary constituency.

Talking to reporters at Gauriganj, the district headquarters of Amethi, Rahul said it could not be termed as the personal attack on the Gujarat Chief Minister.

'The facts of Modi's affidavit are what is being said and there is nothing like personal attack,' he added.

In his affidavit filed along with nomination at Vadodara Lok Sabha seat, Mr Modi had mentioned the name of his wife as Jashodaben while in the last four assembly elections, he had left the column blank.
