"Irani retorted by saying she has made a place for herself in the country on her own and did not use her father's or family's name."
Amethi, April 29 - Congress star campaigner Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Tuesday hit out at BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and questioned his childish behaviour in calling Rahul Gandhi by different names.

Sometimes he compares Rahul to an actor, sometimes calls him 'namuna' - and sometimes 'shehzada' -. You - aspire to become prime minister, why are you getting into such childish behaviour, said Priyanka Gandhi, who is campaigning here for her brother and Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi.

She also asked the Bharatiya Janata Party leader to have some respect for the prime ministerial post and instead tell people how he was going to ensure empowerment for women.

Priyanka Gandhi said her brother Rahul, a sitting MP who is seeking re-election from Amethi constituency for the third time, has the same vision of development as their father Rajiv Gandhi had.

My father used to be the MP from here. He developed Amethi and always thought about long-term, holistic growth. Rahul, who is now your MP and my brother, also has the same vision and thinks of long-term development, she said at the election meeting here.

Priyanka Gandhi accused Smriti Irani, Bharatiya Janata Party - candidate from Amethi constituency, of being cut off from ground reality.

There are other contenders who come here and say there is no electricity or good roads here, despite it being Rahul's constituency.

They take reporters to a dark room and talk, and say there has been no development. They do not want to understand how development has happened here, she said.

Irani retorted by saying she has made a place for herself in the country on her own and did not use her father's or family's name.

From nautanki - to arm-chair politician, seems Mrs. Vadra - has a problem defining me. Whatever I am, have never lived off my family name, she said.
