Jhansi, Feb 11: In a fresh controversy, BJP leader Uma Bharati said that Priyanka was begging for votes with her two children in Rae Bareli as her children accompanied her.
“Rahul calls us beggar because he doesn’t understand the difference between beggars and labourers. Labourers work hard to earn money. Begging is what Priyanka is doing with her two children,” said Uma Bharati.
Uma Bharati said that Gandhi family were not going in the same lane as few days back. Priyanka Gandhi's husband Robert Vodra had expressed his willingness to join the Indian politics in the near future, but Priyanka Gandhi diverted the statement and said that Indian media might have misunderstood Mr Vadra's response, and that he (Mr Vadra) is a successful businessman who is not interested in changing his profession.
While campaigning in Amethi, Vadra had said, "I will only contest elections if I think I can make a difference. If people want, I will enter politics. Right now it's Rahul's time to be in active politics."
"While Robert talks about his intention to join politics, Priyanka says he is not doing so. Husband and wife are talking in different tones. The poor political condition of the family shows a split in it," Uma Bharti said.
"Rahul thinks he is Ram and the poor Dalits are Shabri. While he sits on floor and eats in their homes to show off, when will the day come when these poor Dalits will eat in his house sitting on sofas?
"Is this the same Priyanka who went to court seeking privacy for her children and demanding that photos of her children should not be made public or printed in newspaper? Today she is standing on roads with her children and begging for votes. This shows the poor political condition of the Gandhi family and desperation to get votes that Priyanka has even put her children in the forefront," Bharti chided.
