Maneka hits out at Priyanka for remarks against Varun

April 13, 2014 12:42 IST

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Maneka Gandhi on Sunday hit out at Priyanka Gandhi over her reported remarks that her son Varun Gandhi had gone "astray", saying the country will decide who has gone on the wrong path.

"If he has gone astray while serving the country, the country will decide," she said when asked for her reaction about Priyanka's comment. Priyanka had on Saturday reportedly asked Congress workers in Amethi not to vote for the BJP leader, who is contesting from the adjacent Sultanpur Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh.

"He (Varun) is definitely from my family, he is my brother. But he has gone astray. When a young one in the family chooses the wrong path, then the elders show them the

right path, the right way. I urge all of you to show my brother the right path," Priyanka had said.

Priyanka and her mother Congress president Sonia Gandhi had accompanied Rahul Gandhi in Amethi as he filed his nomination, seeking a third consecutive term from the Lok Sabha constituency.
