Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday attacked Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi over his ‘Yeh dil maange more’ phrase saying that the Gujarat chief minister is not getting tired of asking for votes from the public.
During an election rally, while interacting with supporters here, Priyanka said, “We have a special connection with you. But he (Modi) is not tired of asking votes from the public.”
“We are here because you love us, otherwise we are nothing without you,” Priyanka said.
She added, “I read in the morning that an Opposition leader said ‘Yeh Dil Mange More’. But Congress just wants your empowerment.”
“We don’t want anything from you, just recognize your strength and be empowered,” Priyanka said to the women supporters.
Earlier, hitting out at critics of Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka today said her brother’s style of politics was ‘liberal’ and not ‘opaque’ and that he worked for the development of every section and looked upon all as equals.
During her marathon roadshow covering 130 kms in Amethi, which goes to polls in a week, Priyanka spoke to voters about the “relationship of love” they had with the Gandhis and cautioned them about the intentions of other candidates “who come only during elections”.
She enumerated the development work carried out in the constituency by her family members, including her father Rajiv Gandhi, and even admitted that more needs to be done.
“His (Rahul’s) politics is not opaque, it is liberal. He looks at all as equals and wants that everyone is benefited and stays united,” she said.
She said that the people have supported her family for generations because they have seen them work for the development of the area.
“Many candidates are coming in your area. There are many types of campaigns going on. There is criticism as well that development work has not been undertaken,” she said.
