The BJP party on Friday showed the mirror to Congress general-secretary for Uttar Pradesh (East) Priyanka Gandhi Vadra over her claims that the Gandhi-Vadra family doesn't consider themselves as the 'kings' of this country and that it was their family which had worked against the 'Raja-Maharajas' and fought against their culture.
Taking to Twitter, the Bharatiya Janata Party responded to Republic TV's newsbreak on Priyanka Gandhi's statement, calling out the Congress party over its lies and setting the agenda for 2019 elections.
In a tweet in Hindi, the PM Modi-led BJP wrote, "No matter how many lies you tell, the public knows 2019 is the fight of Raja-Maharaja vs Chowkidar."
This development has come in the light of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's first exclusive election interview to Republic Bharat's Editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami on Friday in which he had exposed the Gandhi family for considering themselves as 'Raja-Maharajas (royalty)'.
"You'll be surprised to know that multiple notices went to the Congress party - multiple notices went in the National Herald case. These people consider themselves Raja-Maharajas (royals). They don’t even respond. So we to go to court. It is not easy to get dates from courts – that is the reason why it is taking so long. It is only after all this that that they were forced to plead for bail in National Herald case," PM Modi had said.
On being questioned about PM Modi's statement by reporters in Faizabad, following her rally, the younger Gandhi sibling had said that her family had worked against the princely rule in the country, removing their privy purses.
"My family worked against the 'Raja-Maharajas' (princes and kings), removed their privy purses. My family never considered itself as a 'Raja-Maharaja'," Congress' General secretary East had said in response to the question.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday gave his first election interview to Republic Media Network's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami addressing a plethora of issues that are likely to determine the election outcome on May 23 when the vote-counting is held.
