Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Tuesday said that the Congress will "fight back" against all those who have "maligned" the Gandhi family.
"There is a change in the way politics is being done in the current elections. My husband and the entire Gandhi family is being maligned. My family is being attacked for the past two Years. My husband has been used for the political attacks. The Congress will fight back with determination," Priyanka said while addressing a rally here. She said that she was saddened by the way politics was being done in the country.
"India is a liberal nation. I am deeply saddened by the way harsh language was used to attack the political leaders during the political campaigns," she said.
"I have learned from Indira Gandhi that strong determination acts as a shield. The Congress party will fight back with determination," she added. Priyanka also urged the voters to vote for development, progress and unity of the nation.
"It is because of Sonia Gandhi ji, that this place has seen so much of development. It is because of her there is electricity, water, roads, and several other facilities in Rae Bareli. I request you to vote for development, progress and unity of the nation," Priyanka said. She said that the politics in the country should be based on the development of people. "Vote for the candidate who has developed this place irrespective of caste and creed," she said.
