No personal hatred against Rajiv Gandhi’s killers: Priyanka GandhiApril 21st, 2009 - 9:08 pm ICT by ANI
Amethi, Apr 21 (ANI): Priyanka Gandhi on Tuesday said that her family has no ‘hatred or anger’ against killers of her father and late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
Priyanka also downplayed the controversial comments of Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam (DMK) chief M. Karunanidhi that the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) supremo V. Prabhakaran is not a terrorist.
“If somebody says things about the LTTE, it does not cause us personal grief. Politics is quite separate to us from our personal grief. I think none of us, in fact has any hatred or anger against those who killed my father,” Priyanka said.
When asked about her brother Rahul Gandhi’s remark that the family was yet to get justice for the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi, Priyanka said she and her brother perhaps reacted differently on this issue.
Priyanka also spoke about Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad’s allegation that the Congress was also responsible for the demolition of the Babri Masjid, saying she found it incongruous that political parties brought out things, which were of no concern to the real issue. (ANI)
