Modi denies 'Priyanka like daughter' remark
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's office on Friday released the full transcript of his interview with public service broadcaster Doordarshan and said Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate never said Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi was like his daughter.
Modi's office accused Doordarshan of allegedly editing out portions of his interview.
Meanwhile, Priyanka Gandhi on Thursday reacted strongly to Modi's "daughter" remark to refer to her and said she does not appreciate such kind of comments.
"My father died for this country more than 20 years ago. I loved him more than anyone in the world. I really don't appreciate this. Enough is enough," Priyanka told CNN-IBN channel in Amethi.
She also said in a rally that "I am Rajiv Gandhi's daughter."
This comes after Modi in an interview to DD News said that Priyanka was like his daughter and not his political rival like her mother, Congress president Sonia Gandhi and brother, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi.
