“Varun ne pariwar ke sath viswasghath kiya hai (Varun has betrayed with the Gandhi family),” Ms Vadra said while talking to reporters at Fhursatganj airport here, where she has arrived to campaign for her brother Rahul Gandhi who is contesting from Amethi. Ms Vadra went to the extent of saying that,” If my son had did such thing, I would would have disowned him.” she said, adding that it is the matter of ideology and not a tea-party.
Ms Vadra made this statement just a hour after Mr Gandhi gave a statement saying that, “I have always practiced politics of decorum. I have always viewed others respect as my own. In the past decade whether there had been a member of my family or a senior leader of any political part my speeches, I have never crossed the laxman rekha of decency.”
He said, “In the last few days, a few statements have been made and all I like to say is that my decency and large heartedness should not be considered as weakness by anyone. On the other hand, Ms Vadra, reacting to the recent book by former advisor in PMO Sanjaya Baru, claimed that Manmohan Singh is a super PM and no one has diluted his authority.
