Congress leader and sister of ex-MP Rahul Gandhi on Thursday trained all guns blazing towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi over her brother's disqualification. Rahul Gandhi was disqualified from Lok Sabha today, a day after he was convicted by a Surat court in a 2019 criminal defamation case.

Taking strong exception to the disqualification of Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Gandhi Vadra questioned why Parliament didn't take cognisance of the PM 'insulting her whole family and the Kashmiri Pandit community' when Narendra Modi in the House had asked 'why they (Gandhis) don't keep the name Nehru.

"Your sycophants called the son of a martyr prime minister a traitor, Mir Jafar. One of your Chief Minister raised the question that who is the father of Rahul Gandhi? Following the custom of Kashmiri Pandits, a son wears a turban after his father's death, maintaining his family's tradition. Insulting the whole family and the Kashmiri Pandit community, you asked why they don't keep the name Nehru in the full parliament. But no judge gave you a sentence of two years. Did not disqualify you from the Parliament…."

Calling the ex-Wayanad PM a patriot, Priyanka said, "Rahul ji like a true patriot questioned Adani's loot... Raised questions on Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi….Has your friend Gautam Adani become bigger than the country's parliament and the great people of India that you were shocked when his loot was questioned?"

Reiterating that they will not bow down before the Centre, Priyanka said, 'You call my family dynast... but this family watered India's democracy with their blood, which you are trying to destroy. This family raised the voice of the people of India and fought for the truth for generations. The blood that runs in our veins has one speciality… Never bowed down in front of a coward, power-hungry dictator like you and will never bow down. Do whatever you want."
