Speaking to the CNN-IBN in an interview (read here), Kulkarni, whose mother is the daughter of the Mahatma's third daughter, said there was no need to rake up the issue of Gandhi's assassination after so many years and that India has several issues to look after now. He said several inquiry commissions were set up and no organisation was indicted.

Kulkarni also said that it is not right to brand people organisation. He said some misguided Tamils killed former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi but that didn't mean all Tamils are bad. The same applies to the Sikhs and the assassination of Indira Gandhi.

Kulkarni, a member of the Aam Aadmi Party like his uncle Rajmohan Gandhi who is contesting the Lok Sabha election this year from East Delhi, posted an open letter (read the letter here) to the Congress vice-president on his Facebook page and other social media sites on the issue. He also accused the Congress of misusing the name of Gandhi. "You are not from the Gandhi family. You have fooled too many people for too long in India. Stop it now," he said.
