Modi, Advani have misconceptions about their age: PriyankaApril 13th, 2009 - 5:02 pm ICT by IANS
Amethi (Uttar Pradesh), April 13 (IANS) Countering Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s comment that the Congress party was a “budhiya” (old lady), Congress chief Sonia Gandhi’s daughter Priyanka Gandhi said Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) prime ministerial candidate L.K. Advani have misconceptions about their age.
“Modiji aur Advaniji ko apni umra par kuch confusion hai aur woh apne aap ko jawan samajhte hain, isi liye wo Rahul ko baccha kehtein hain (Modi and Advani are confused about their age and they consider themselves to be young. That is why they call Rahul a kid),” Priyanka told reporters after a public meeting here.
Priyanka has been campaigning for Rahul and Sonia in their constituencies Amethi and Rae Bareli for the past few days.
Replying to a reporter’s query Saturday, Priyanka Gandhi said that if Advani, 81, and Modi, 58, consider themselves young then it is good for them.
She reiterated that her brother is capable of becoming the prime minister of the country.
“I never said that he (Rahul) will become the PM but I said that he has all the qualities of becoming the PM in future,” she clarified.
