Earlier on Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had attacked Rahul Gandhi and accused him of defending those who were abusing his mother.
“Two days ago they dragged my mother’s name during a rally and today I read in social media that they had dragged my father’s name who died 30 years ago and had nothing to do with politics, and ‘Namdaar’ (Gandhi) is defending them,” PM said during an election meeting.
