"Sardar Patel was a sincere leader of Congress who dedicated himself to the party's ideology. He was a close confidant of Nehru and a staunch critic of RSS. The BJP's attempt to appropriate Sardar Patel and its tributes make me very happy," Priyanka Gandhi tweeted with a picture of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel with Jawaharlal Nehru. In another tweet, the Congress leader said that the BJP doesn't have a freedom fighter from their party to project in public. #SayNoToKanda: Priyanka Gandhi Asks Women to Boycott BJP Over Support From Gopal Kanda.
"BJP's action makes two things clear - one, they have no legendary freedom fighter of their own, almost all were linked with the Congress, and two, even Sardar Patel's enemies are forced to revere him," Priyanka Gandhi wrote. Since it came to power in 2014, the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have been accusing the Congress and the Nehru-Gandhi family of undermining Sardar Patel as a leader.
Priyanka Gandhi's Tweets:
..ऐक्शन से दो चीज़ें स्पष्ट होती हैं:
1. उनका अपना कोई स्वतंत्रता सेनानी महापुरुष नहीं है। तक़रीबन सभी कांग्रेस से जुड़े थे।
2. सरदार पटेल जैसे महापुरुष को एक न एक दिन उनके शत्रुओं को भी नमन करना पड़ता है।
