Priyanka Gandhi on Friday termed as “all political talks” the statement of senior BJP leader Jaswant Singh who claimed that L K Advani had opposed the decision to free terrorists during the Kandahar hijack.
In a stepped-up attack on BJP’s prime ministerial candidate L K Advani, Priyanka said “what does it matter. This thing (the release of terrorist)happened when he was the Home Minister. These are all political talks,” Priyanka said when asked to comment on Singh’s statement.
“Now he (Advani) will not even take the responsibility for it. He is now saying he was not ready to release the terrorist under pressure. What kind of leader he is who does not want to take responsibility,” she told PTI here.
Asked whether Mayawati was ignoring the development of Amethi and Rae Bareli, Priyanka said, “I have not seen development wherever I have gone.”
“What is the mistake that the innocent people (residents of Rae Bareli and Amethi) have committed to be deprived of development. Is it their fault that they leave in Rae Bareli and Amethi.”
