Modi insulted my family but I won't insult his: Rahul Gandhi

Press Trust of India  |  Ujjain 

Tuesday said Modi insulted his father and grandmother during campaigning but he would not do the same to the latter's parents.

Addressing a rally ahead of the fourth and last phase of polls in Madhya Pradesh, Gandhi also said Modi should stop talking about "clouds and mangoes" and tell people about issues which matter.

Gandhi also said the would defeat the prime minister "with love".

"talks with hatred. He insults my father, grandmother, great grandfather. But I will never in my life speak about his family, his mother and father. I will die, but will never insult his mother and father.

"This is because I am not a RSS or BJP man, but belong to the I will return him love if hatred is thrown at me...We will defeat with love, hugging you," he said.

The Congress was apparently referring to the prime minister's statements made in two interviews: to a channel and another to

"talks with hatred...he insulted my father, grandmother and great grandfather...I will die, but not insult Modi ji's mother and father," he said.

Gandhi said Modi talked about cloud cover "helping" IAF planes evade Pakistani radars during the Balakot air strikes and about climbing trees and eating mangoes.

"Clouds and mangoes are being talked about, but nothing is being said on the issues which matter," he said.
