"After winning, how many times did Sonia Gandhi and her family come to see you? Sonia Gandhi usually has health issues but what about Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi? There have been several unfortunate incidents in the constituency in the past few years but did the Gandhi family ever turn up?" Shah said at a rally in Raebareli.

“There is not an iota of truth in this,” Priyanka Gandhi said in a strong rebuttal, accusing Union home minister Amit Shah of monitoring the activities of women, reported The Times of India.

"Amit Shah is known for keeping an eye on who does what, when and where, especially women. A few days ago I went to see my daughter in Thailand and he made a reference to this in an election meeting,” TOI quoted Priyanka as saying.

“Yes, I did go to Thailand, but will he tell how he got to know of this? And when he keeps all the information, why does he have to lie?” she added.
