Maneka Gandhi gets notice after her vote call to Muslims sparks row
Gandhi said Muslim voters need to understand it was a give-and-take relationship. “We are not progeny of Mahatma Gandhi. It’s not that we keep giving and then losing in the election. “When an election comes and this booth throws up 100 votes or 50 votes, and then you come to me for work…we will have to see the polling. You all are all my well-wishers and remain my supporters. I do not see any divide, who belongs to which community. I see only pain, sadness and love. So it is for you to decide,” she said.
Sultanpur is one of the 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh. Gandhi swapped her Pilibhit seat with Varun’s Sultanpur. Sultanpur will go to polls in May 12.
