A day after Priyanka Gandhi said her estranged brother and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Varun Gandhi has strayed on the wrong path, Maneka Gandhi responded by saying the nation will give an answer as to who has strayed from the right path.

Varun Gandhi came under attack by Priyanka as she addressed party workers during her visit to Sultanpur yesterday when she accompanied Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi as he filed his nomination papers from Amethi.

Priyanka was accompanied by Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Robert Vadra during her visit to Amethi where Rahul filed his nomination papers.

While addressing the people, she also added that Varun needs to be led into the right direction.

Significantly, Varun is contesting Lok Sabha polls from the Sultanpur constituency on a BJP ticket.

The comment by Priyanka was made after the 34-year-old BJP candidate had praised the development work done by Rahul in Amethi.

Soon after the remark was made, his mother Maneka Gandhi had said whatever he had said was wrong and there was no development work in the constituency.

Varun Gandhi then backtracked and said his statement should not be considered as an endorsement of any political party or candidate.
