"Asked by ABP News TV channel as to why he continuously referred to Rahul Gandhi as shehzada or prince with a tinge of sarcasm, Modi said the word 'shehzada' was there in history."
New Delhi, April 22 - BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi sidestepped criticism of his referring to Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi as shehzada, saying the party used to refer to its president Sonia Gandhi as rajmata some years ago.

Asked by ABP News TV channel as to why he continuously referred to Rahul Gandhi as shehzada or prince with a tinge of sarcasm, Modi said the word 'shehzada' was there in history.

Around four-five years back, the Congress used to refer to Sonia Gandhi as 'rajmata'. And they continued using the word for a long time... So now, should I question the Congress for using these princely terms when those times are long over? he said.
