Modi's calling Rahul as Shehzada is childish: Priyanka
Congress star campaigner Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, daughter of Congress president and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, today continued her attack on BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi terming his act of calling her brother Rahul Gandhi as 'shehzada' childish.
'When my father Rajiv Gandhi had initiated landmark programmes like computer revolution, he had to face a lot of criticism from the very same people who are now lampooning Rahul Gandhi,' said Ms Vadra.
Without naming the BJP, she said 'top leaders of a party make fun of Rahul (Gandhi). At times they call him a specimen, at times they compare him to a comedian, at times they call him shehzada...you dream of becoming the PM, then why behave childishly,' asked the Congress campaigner here.
Ms Vadra was holding a road show and campaigning in her brother's constituency where polling is scheduled on May 7.
'They must tell people what are their specific plans for employment generation, development and women empowerment. Half of BJP's manifesto is just a copy of Congress. There are no specific programmes or schemes in it,' she asserted.
'The people, must therefore, decide what type of government they need and what sort of politics they are looking for,' she said. Ms Vadra urged the people to ask the BJP leaders to talk about development and their plans for the people's welfare.
'If you remain vigilant, politicians will be more careful,' she underlined.
