Congress Party spokesman Randeep Surjewala on Tuesday, told reporters that in the last two years, it has been seen that Modi and some leaders of the BJP have been levelling cheap allegations against-different members- of the Gandhi family despite knowing that there is no truth in those allegations. "They have resorted to politics of malicious persecution with a revengeful attitude aimed at members of the Gandhi family knowing fully well that neither there is any truth in the allegation, nor there is any foundation." Surejewala said.

"Modi and his party are now resorting to petty politicking and malicious campaign. People of India have rejected such BJP sponsored allegations in the past against Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi and we are sure that people of India will once again reject this petty politicking," he said. Surjewala said people of India are not going to fall into this trap again and will give a befitting reply to such divisive forces.

In Rae Bareli, Priyanka Gandhi said her resolve to fight back will increase the more the opponents attack. Robert Vadra has been under attack from BJP and some other parties for quite some time over controversial land deals in Haryana and Rajasthan.

Campaigning for her mother and Congress President Sonia Gandhi in this constituency of Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka said Vadra was being attacked by BJP to divert the attention of people from the development issues to "meaningless talk" and that the "truth" about her husband will prevail.
