Narendra Modi always needs more: Priyanka Gandhi

Congress leader said that BJP is desperate to come into power

Amethi: Priyanka Gandhi on Wednesday took a dig at Narendra Modi for invoking a Kargil martyr’s slogan of ‘Yeh dil maange more’ to pitch for 300 seats for NDA, saying that while the BJP leader does not get tired of asking for votes from people, the Congress seeks to empower them.

“I read in newspapers that there is a leader from a political party who says ‘yeh dil mange more’. He is asking for it again and again. He does not get tired,” Priyanka said.

As her remarks drew laughter, she said, “But we are saying we do not want anything from you. We want you to become vigilant, realise your potential and be empowered.”

She also invoked her father Rajiv Gandhi’s legacy while campaigning in Amethi and said, “I can see mobile pho-nes in your hands. Some credit must go to Rajiv ji for the same. He had great foresight and when he conceptualized this.”

During a poll rally in Palampur on Tuesday, Mr Modi repeatedly referred to the famous quote of Kargil martyr Vikram Batra ‘Yeh dil mange more’ in his home town.

His statement was disapproved by the soldier’s family and attacked by political rivals.

Batra, who fought the 1999 Kargil war, was awarded Param Vir Chakra, the highest military honour, posthumously.
