Vadra Congress does not carry the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi: Savio Rodrigues


Share post:


Slamming the Leader of Opposition, Goa Legislative Assembly, Yuri Alemao, for his social media post claiming that Rahul Gandhi has a blood relation with Mahatma referring to Mahatma Gandhi, BJP spokesperson Savio Rodrigues, in a video on social media stated, “Rahul, Rajiv or Indira Gandhi are not blood relations of Mahatma Gandhi, they are blood relatives of India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru”.

He further expressed, “That there is no doubt that Rajiv and Indira Gandhi, like Mahatma Gandhi, were victims of an act of terrorism. But like in the case of the death of Rajiv Gandhi, other people too died but you do not have people appropriating the name of Gandhi”.

“Congress has been misusing and misappropriating the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi for years now. It is time that Congress renames itself as the Vadra Congress and not the Gandhi Congress. They do not carry the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi”, Savio added.

Taking to Twitter, and addressing the Chief Minister of Goa, Dr Pramod Sawant, Alemao has said, “Yes! Our leader, Rahul Gandhi, has blood relation with Mahatma, who shed his blood for inclusive India. Rahul Gandhi’s grandmother, Indira Ji, also shed her blood for united India. Indian soil has blood of Rahul’s father, Rajiv Gandhi, who was brutally assassinated”.

“Rahul Gandhi toes Mahatma’s path of compassion eschewing any form of vengeance on his father’s killers. We are followers of Gandhiji’s humanistic values and respect to diverse cultures and lifestyles. Rahul Gandhi has blood relation with mother India”, Alemao’s tweet further read.
