'Even after the murder of grandmother and father, faith in the country never wavered'

Recalling the events that took place during the assassination of Indira Gandhi, he said, "...our grandmother was not just our grandmother, but a great personality. How could someone kill them so brutally like this? I often wonder what kind of feeling of patriotism he must have instilled in our hearts that despite such a violent incident, our faith in the country did not waver even for a minute or a second.

'This is not familyism, but it is devotion towards the country'

She said, “When I was 19 years old, a similar incident happened with my father, but still our faith and patriotism towards the country remained intact. I am saying all these things because when we talk about Nehru ji, Indira ji and Rajiv ji, people who criticize us immediately raise the issue of 'familyism'. I want to tell you that this is not familyism, but it is devotion towards the country, which cannot be broken.'' She said, ''This is faith towards the people, farmers... no matter what you (opponents) do. Say, you will never be able to break this faith and patriotism.'' Priyanka Gandhi said this when Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and Assembly Speaker Charan Das Mahanta, who were attending the rally, remembered former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Mahant said that the people of Bilaspur love Indira Gandhi and the image of Indira Gandhi is visible in her (Priyanka).
