Indira Gandhi , Rajiv Gandhi Are Martyrs : Trinamool Congress MP


New Delhi: It should be kept in mind that Trinamool Congress MP Dinesh Trivedi said that former Prime Ministers Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi are martyrs, while criticising them.

MP Dinesh Trivedi said even though politicians may not agree with them on ideological level, it should not be forgotten that they died for the country. He said it in a debate on the Budget in Lok Sabha. “How can we forget Rajiv Gandhi gave his life for the country… Indira Gandhi gave her life for this country…,” he said.”

After Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a blistering attack on the Congress party speaking on issues ranging from dynasty politics, corruption, lax governance, as well as for hasty bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, MP Trivedi said “Somewhere down the line, the person criticising should also keep in mind we are referring to martyrs…We may have differences, we may disagree with the Emergency…”
