Priyanka Gandhi slams Varun Gandhi over surname use

April 27th, 2009 - 11:00 pm ICT by ANI  

Priyanka Gandhi Rae Bareli, Apr 27 (ANI): Priyanka Gandhi, the daughter of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, on Monday hit back at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Varun Gandhi, saying people vote for her family members not due to Gandhi surname but due to the work done by them.

“Many people ask me why do our family members keep on winning from these seats. Some argue we are Gandhis that’s why we win, but this is not true. Whether the name Gandhi is with us or not you would not have promoted us had we not worked,” Priyanka said at an election rally here.

Priyanka remarks come a day after her cousin Varun Gandhi said that he wanted to be known for his work, not by his Gandhi surname. (ANI)
