Pitroda to aid of Rahul: He faced terror trauma too

New Delhi, April 14

Congress leader Sam Pitroda said party chief Rahul Gandhi has experienced the trauma of terrorism and those questioning him in the matter should feel ashamed.

In an interview, Pitroda said Rahul Gandhi lost his grandmother (Indira Gandhi) and father (Rajiv Gandhi) to terrorism and that the leader understands the trauma and suffering associated with it.

He said those doubting Rahul’s nationalism should be “ashamed” of themselves.

Referring to senior BJP leader LK Advani’s recent remarks in a blog post, the chief of Indian Overseas Congress said BJP leaders must learn from the veteran leader.

“I disagree with Advani on many issues, but respect him as a person. BJP leaders must learn from Advani who has advised against calling people with different political views as ‘anti-national’,” he said. — PTI
