NEW DELHI: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of blaming the Nehru-Gandhi family for his own failures.
She alleged that PM Modi was like a schoolboy who failed to do his homework and his excuses are Pandit Nehru has taken away his answer-sheet and Indira Gandhi has made a paper boat out of that.
"Modi's situation is like a schoolboy who never comes with his homework. When the teachers ask him, he says Nehruji took my paper away and hid it or Indira Gandhi made a paper boat out of that and drowned it in the water", Priyanka said.
Priyanka Gandhi was holding a roadshow in support of Sheila Dikshit, the Congress' candidate from the Northeast Delhi constituency.
She also challenged PM Modi to contest the last two phases of the general election on the issues of demonetisation, GST, women's security and the promises made by him to the people of the country.
Earlier, Modi had earlier challenged the Congress to fight the last two phases in the name of Rajiv Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi's father and former prime minister, who he has described as ‘bhrashtachari no.1’ (corrupt number 1).
Voting for the 543 Lok Sabha seats is being held in seven phases: April 11, April 18, April 23, April 29, May 6, May 12 and May 19.
Counting of the votes will be done on May 23.
