I may also be killed one day like my father, grandmother: Rahul Gandhi

Churu/Alwar: Ahead of the Assembly Elections in Rajasthan, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi made an emotional pitch at the election rallies here, accused the BJP of sparking communal tensions in the country for political benefits, and equated the plight of Uttar Pradesh's riot-ravaged Muzaffarnagar district's people with himself. 

While addressing a rally in Churu in poll-bound Rajasthan, Rahul Gandhi said: "My grandmother was murdered. My father was murdered. Now I may also be killed one day. I don't care about it." 

Rahul revealed, in detail, his emotions on his grandmother’s assassination. 

Rahul said: “I knew Satwant Singh and Beant Singh, and used to play badminton with them. They were my friends.” Satwant Singh and Beant Singh were Indira Gandhi’s guards who killed her in coldblood. 

Throwing light on the unfortunate episode, Rahul said that Beant Singh used to ask him where Indira Gandhi slept. 

“He (Beant) told me if someone ever threw a hand grenade, I should immediately lie down on the ground. Initially, I didn’t understand as why he was telling me all this, but later realised that they were planning to kill my grandmother by hurling a grenade.” 


Recounting the horrific day when Indira Gandhi was killed, Rahul said, “I was in classroom at my school when someone approached my teacher and whispered something in her ears. The teacher told me to go home immediately. I called up home from principal's office. I heard a scream from our housemaid. I was told something wrong had happened to my grandmother". 

Gandhi said he and his sister Priyanka were taken home, hidden under the passenger seats of a car by bodyguards. 

"When I reached home, I saw blood of my grandmother on the road and the blood of two security guards, Satwant Singh and Beant Singh, in a room. They had always been like my friends." 

Rahul said that he was very angry because of his grandmother’s murder and added that it takes years to get rid of anger but it takes one minute to incite it. "The incident filled me with a rage. It took me 10-15 years to calm down my anger," said Gandhi. 

“I have faced this twice, they killed my grandmother and my father and they might kill me too, but I am not afraid,” Rahul exhorted. 

The Congress vice president accused political parties of inciting violence for political gains. 

Gandhi added that recently a legislator from Punjab was sitting in his room. 

"The legislator told me that had he met me 20 years ago, he would have murdered me. But now he wanted to hug me. The point I want to drive home is that nobody has in-built anger. Anger is instilled by political parties. It takes years to calm down the anger, but a minute to ignite it. That is why I am against BJP and its politics," said Gandhi. 

He accused the BJP of causing bloodshed for political benefits. 

"I am against the kind of politics BJP does as they spark fire of tension for political benefits... they hurt people for political gains."
