Notwithstanding her public outburst against brother Sunjay Dutt for joining SP, Congress MP Priya Dutt on Wednesday said that her relationship with him was “above politics” and he will even campaign for her in the next month’s general elections if she wishes so.

“We both belong to different political parties. He will have his limitation... so will I, but our relationship is above politics. He will campaign for me if I wish so,” Priya told reporters in Mumbai.

Asked whether she would campaign for Sanjay in Lucknow, she said she would do so if her brother wanted her to but added “let us reach that stage first.”

“There is no need to draw different conclusions just because we belong to different political parties. Our aim in politics is the same,” said the Congress MP, who is seeking a second term in the Lok Sabha from the Mumbai North-Central constituency.

On Samajwadi Party’s threat to field a candidate against her if the Congress puts up a nominee against Sanjay in Lucknow, Priya said she “did not understand politics” and would not like to comment on it.
