Congress chief Rahul Gandhi Sunday replied with "love and a huge hug" to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "bhrashtachari no. 1" barb against his father Rajiv Gandhi and asked him to wait for his 'karma' to catch up.

Rahul's comments came after Modi at a poll rally had said that Rajiv Gandhi's life ended as "bhrashtachari no. 1" (corrupt no. 1 ).

"Modi Ji, The battle is over. Your Karma awaits you. Projecting your inner beliefs about yourself onto my father won't protect you. All my love and a huge hug. Rahul," the Congress president tweeted.

At a rally in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday, Modi had targeted the former prime minister while attacking Rahul.

"Your father was termed Mr Clean by his courtiers, but his life ended as bhrashtachari no 1," Modi had said.

Modi had claimed that Rahul had admitted in an interview that his only aim is to tarnish his image. "By hurling abuses, you cannot turn the 50 long years of 

Modi's tapasya (struggle) into dust," the prime minister had said.

"By tarnishing my image and by making me look small, these people want to form an unstable and a weak government in the country," he had said
