Without naming any leader, Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Monday said that the party has a leader to compete with Narendra Modi.
“I don’t agree that Congress party does not have a leader to compete with Narendra Modi,” Sonia Gandhi told in an interview to India Today.

She added that there is no comparison between former Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi and Narendra Modi.

“It does not trouble me when someone says Narendra Modi is like Indira Gandhi because there is no comparison,” the Congress President said.

She said that Indira Gandhi’s loyalty and devotion towards the people of India is her greatest contribution.

Sonia said that her mother-in-law was willing to give up everything including her life for the citizens of the country.

“Indira Gandhi felt strongly for the people of East Bengal due to the atrocities committed on them,”she said.

She said that the former PM had deep compassion for the people in need and this is missing in today’s politics.

The Congress president also said that Indira Gandhi knew all the prominent leaders of the freedom struggle and they were like family for her. She added that all members of her family had been influenced by Indira Gandhi in various ways.

Sonia said that she never wanted to join politics but it was a feeling of ‘duty towards country, which led her to do so’ “I would not have been in politics if I was not the daughter-in-law of Indira Gandhi” Sonia said. “My mother-in-law’s assassination was a terrible blow for all of us,” she added.

Recalling her first meeting with her mother-in-law, Sonia said “At home, she was a completely different person. She was very gentle and understanding”

Talking about Rajiv Gandhi’s decision to join politics, Sonia said that she never wanted her husband, to join politics and she had even openly opposed it. “I didn’t want to join politics. I did not want my husband to join politics. He was not keen. He was happy being a pilot,” said Sonia.
