New Delhi: Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, day after he termed late PM Rajiv Gandhi as ‘corrupt number 1’.

While Priyanka Gandhi said the remark was reflective of the PM’s “uncontrolled insanity” and an insult to Rajiv Gandhi martyrdom, Rahul Gandhi told Modi, “Projecting your inner beliefs about yourself onto my father won’t protect you.”

“Modi Ji, The battle is over. Your Karma awaits you,” the Congress chief said, referring to the result of Lok Sabha elections.

“Projecting your inner beliefs about yourself onto my father won’t protect you. All my love and a huge hug,” Rahul wrote in the tweet.

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi also slammed Modi and said the people of Amethi would give a befitting reply to him for besmirching the image of an “honest and pure man”.

On Saturday, PM Modi, in an attack at Rahul said that his father was termed “Mr Clean by his courtiers, but his life ended as ''Bhrashtachari No 1'' (corrupt number 1)". This was in response to Rahul’s allegations of corruption in the Rafale deal.

Modi was referring to the Bofors scams which in which it was alleged that Swedish defence manufacturer Bofors had paid huge kickbacks to Rajiv Gandhi and others for the sale of its artillery gun to India. The high court had said there was no evidence that Rajiv Gandhi accepted any bribes.

Congress leaders P Chidambaram, Ahmed Patel, Sam Pitroda and Randeep Singh Surjewala also slammed PM Modi’s statement and said that Rajiv Gandhi had sacrificed his life for the country.
