Me, my sister have 'completely forgiven' father Rajiv's killers: Rahul Gandhi

Gandhi, 71, who was Congress president for 19 years was replaced by her son Rahul last year after internal party elections.

The younger Gandhi also told the IIM alumni in Malaysia that he and his sister Priyanka had "completely forgiven" their father's killers.

In an attack on Prime Minister Modi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi termed demonetization as "not a good" initiative. Now Rahul Gandhi says he and his sister had completely forgiven their father's killers.

Rahul Gandhi's comments in Malaysia today were reminiscent of what he said during a tour of the United States of America that he undertook previous year.

"There is a history that when one realises that when these events take place, it's collision of ideas, forces, confusion". When I saw Prabhakaran lying dead on TV, I got two feelings - first was why they are humiliating this man in this way.

"And second was.I felt really bad for him and for his kids", said Gandhi during the interactive session. "I find it hard to hate people, even my sister does", he said.

LTTE, a militant organisation from Sri Lanka, led by Velupillai Prabhakaran was found responsible for plotting and executing the assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

After addressing the Indian Diaspora here Rahul, in reply to a question as to how he would have handled demonetisation differently, said, 'if I had been the Prime Minister and had received a file with demonetisation written on it, I would have thrown it in the dustbin.

"I was 14 when my grandmother was assassinated". I fail to understand why we should be lenient towards someone who collaborated with foreigners to kill our former Prime Minister. So you live in a particular environment.surrounded by 15 guys from morning noon to night. I think there is a bias in all societies, including the west, against women and that bias needs to be corrected. "I think that's quite a hard thing to deal with", he said in a video shared by the Congress party on its Twitter handle.
