BJP leader and Congress president Rahul Gandhi's cousin, Varun Gandhi on Sunday praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi, stating that no Prime Minister brought glory to India like Modi, including those belonging to his family.
Varun Gandhi said while campaigning at Pilibhit in Uttar Pradesh, where he is the BJP candidate.
"Honestly speaking, some people in my family have been prime ministers too but the kind of prestige PM Modi has brought to India, nobody else has done for the country for a long time. That man is living for the country and he will die for the country. He only thinks about the country," Varun Gandhi said, addressing a public rally at Pilibhit.
"In five years, Prime Minister Modi has not a single accusation of corruption. There are no corruption charges on him. For whom would he do corruption when he has no one else in his family," Varun added.
Varun Gandhi, the cousin of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, is the youngest of the fifth generation of the Nehru-Gandhi family. His father Sanjay Gandhi was the younger son of Indira Gandhi; Rahul Gandhi's father Rajiv Gandhi was his older brother.
