"We also go and take care," retorted Congress President Sonia Gandhi's when a SP MP told the Lok Sabha what his party has done to protect the ancestral house of Indira Gandhi.

The issue propped up during a discussion on the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Bill, which was introduced in the Lok Sabha on Monday by Law Minister Verappa Moily.

During the discussion, SP MP Shailendra Kumar spoke about the need to conserve 'Swaraj Bhawan', Indira Gandhi's birthplace, in Allahabad.

Kumar said the SP had done a lot to protect the monument, which was donated to the Congress party by Motilal Nehru in 1930.

"We also go and take care," was Sonia Gandhi's reply.
