Launching a scathing attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his remarks that he is an dopted son of Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi, daughter of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, said that UP didn't need adopted sons as it has own.
Priyanka said that Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav are two sons of UP, who will work for the development of the state.
"Modi said UP has adopted him as a son. Does UP need to adopt anyone from outside for its development? UP doesn't need an adopted son to do good for the state. Rahul Gandhi and Akhileshji are two sons of UP," Priyanka said as per a report in indiatoday.in.
Priyanka while attacking PM Modi said that the public in UP should not vote to those who make false promises.
Today, Priyanka Gandhi was campaigning in her mother's Lok Sabha constituency Raebareli along with Congress Vice-President and brother Rahul Gandhi for UP assembly elections. It was also her first appearance at an election rally in UP.
Rahul Gandhi, who addressed the election rally before sister Priyanka Gandhi, said that PM Modi didn't fulfill any promise that he had made to Varanasi during the Lok Sabha elections.
Earlier, on February 16, addressing an election rally in UP's Hardoi, Prime Minister Modi had called himself as as the "adopted son" of UP. He had said that the state was his 'mai-baap' (parents) and he will not desert it.
