PATNA: Senior BJP leader and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi launched a vitriolic attack on Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Thursday, a day after she entered active politics, saying the Congress was feeling happy “over the induction of a woman with a tainted life partner”. Sushil Modi said her appointment would bring the alleged corruption scandals against Robert Vadra onto “centre-stage”, which would benefit the NDA.
“Priyanka’s businessman husband’s irregular land transactions are spread across two states and he is facing probes. If the Congress wants to exult over the induction of a woman with a tainted life partner, it is most welcome to do so,” Modi said. Earlier, talking to reporters in Patna on the sidelines of a function, Sushil Modi had claimed that Priyanka’s induction into the Congress was aimed at “threatening the SP-BSP alliance”.PG
In a tweet, Sushil Modi also scoffed at Priyanka Gandhi’s resemblance to her grandmother and former prime minister Indira Gandhi. “If a person could become as capable as someone else merely by resembling him or her, by now, we would have had many more Virat Kohlis and Amitabh Bachchans. Duplicates do not work in politics. Priyanka might resemble Indira, but there is a big difference,” Sushil Modi said.
Sushil Modi also compared Priyanka Gandhi’s husband and businessman Robert Vadra with Indira Gandhi’s spouse Feroze Gandhi. Sushil Modi said Feroze Gandhi was a good orator and an upright parliamentarian “who had the guts to speak against his powerful father-in-law”, then prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru.bPriyanka Gandhi formally entered politics on Wednesday, with her brother and Congress president Rahul Gandhi appointing her as general secretary for eastern Uttar Pradesh.

“The BJP is not at all worried. Why should it be when her entry is only going to help us. The Congress has brought in Priyanka with a view to threaten the SP-BSP alliance, with the possibility of a split in their votes. It is a desperate attempt to make Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati rethink their strategy,” he said.
“If a person could become as capable as someone else merely by resembling him or her, by now we would have had many more Virat Kohlis and Amitabh Bachchans. Duplicates do not work in politics. Priyanka Gandhi might resemble Indira Gandhi, but there is a big difference,” Mr Modi said.(With Agency Inputs ).
