Amethi, May 3 - Hundreds of booklets containing offensive remarks against Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her son, party vice president Rahul Gandhi, have surfaced here in the last two days.

The 16-page booklet on Rahul Gandhi has the incumbent Amethi Lok Sabha member on its cover and goes on to say how he was never an Indian and did not believe in the ethos and culture of Indianness.

The books titled Rahul ki Ravanleela and Sonia ki Barbarta have been published by an unknown outfit called Sanskriti Rakshak Sangh.

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, during campaigning for her brother Rahul Gandhi in Amethi, Friday slammed the people behind the booklets and dared them to come out in the open.

The booklets have several pictures of Sonia, Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi wearing western outfits and apparently aims at describing them as westerners.

A source told IANS that district officials have begun a probe into the distribution of the booklets and are trying to figure out who was behind them.

Amethi goes to the polls May 7. Rahul Gandhi, who is seeking re-election, faces Smriti Irani of the Bharatiya Janata Party and Kumar Vishwas of the Aam Aadmi Party among others.
