Priyanka’s ‘advice’ to Varun

Atiq Khan


LUCKNOW: Priyanka Vadra, cousin of Varun Gandhi, on Monday advised him to read the Bhagvad Gita and try to understand the meaning of the religious text.

Ms. Vadra, who is on a two-day visit to her mother Sonia Gandhi’s constituency Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh, told reporters in Bachrawan tehsil of the district that Mr. Gandhi should exercise restraint over the spoken word.

Her comments were in reference to the inflammatory speeches by Mr. Gandhi in Pilibhit during election meetings.

A PTI report quoted Ms. Vadra as saying: “well, it may be very sad to see him saying those comments on television and what can I say? I would advise him to read the Gita properly and to try to understand it properly.”

The report also quoted her as saying that what Mr. Gandhi said in his speeches clearly went against the principles that their family stood for and its members had lived and died for.
