Priyanka Gandhi, the daughter of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, Monday said Modi had insulted her martyred father Rajiv Gandhi, and that the Congress booth workers in Amethi would give a befitting reply to his low-level politics.

They have insulted my martyred father on the soil of Amethi. People of Amethi will never forgive them for this wrong act. My workers at booths will reply to this despicable politics. Each and every booth of Amethi will give a reply, Priyanka Gandhi had said.
