'Has anyone robbed your mangalsutra during Congress rule?' Priyanka Gandhi counters PM's charge

Bengaluru/IBNS: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Tuesday countered Prime Minister Narendra Modi's comments about the Congress robbing people of their wealth to give to "infiltrators", questioning if such a thing has ever happened in the 50-year rule of the party.

She said her mother sacrificed mangalsutra for the country and her grandmother's gold was donated during the war.

Speaking in Bengaluru, she asked the people about what they hear these days when they turn on the television. "Not plans for their welfare or development, but crazy talk and demands," she said.

"He says the Congress wants to take away your gold, your mangalsutra. The country has been independent for 70 years. The Congress ruled for 55 years. Has anyone robbed you of your gold or your mangalsutra? When the war was on, Indira Gandhi gave her gold to the country. My mother's mangalsutra was sacrificed for this country," she said.

"The Prime Minister says they will cross 400 seats and change the constitution... sometimes he says he is being abused, or talks about religion. You are among the most qualified cities in the world... do you deserve this?" she said

In a rally in Rajasthan on Sunday, PM Modi claimed that the Congress intended to seize people's property and redistribute it to Muslims. "They will not even leave your 'mangalsutra'," he had said.
