Varun Gandhi, a recent BJP entrant and son of former Union Minister Maneka Gandhi on Saturday expressed "displeasure" at Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's "derogatory" remarks against his aunt and Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul and said leaders must refrain from resorting to any "personal" attack.

Varun, who is campaigning for BJP in south Gujarat told mediapersons at Daman without naming Modi that Lok Sabha elections are not a fight between any two political leaders but they are for "nation's welfare".

He however hastened to add that it was not because of his "relationship" with Gandhi family that he is condemning Modi's remarks but only because the polls are matter of nation's interest and not a duel between leaders.

The young turk of BJP is canvassing near the very route where Sonia Gandhi had organised her roadshow on March 16 and 17 in the tribal belt.

Quoting a "survey" carried out in Nadiad town, Modi had said during Deputy Prime Minister L K Advani's Bharat Uday Yatra that Gandhi and her son were found "unfit" for even job of a clerk and a driver. PTI AVK TAP CPB ASM NNG 04031619 D
