BJP's Swamy calls Priyanka an alcoholic
New Delhi, April 16: In a jibe against Priyanka Gandhi, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy said that she would have been thrashed if she contested from Varanasi as she drunk too much. He also said that she and her husband Robert Vadra had a bad name.

Thereafter in a tweet, he wished Varun Gandhi all the best and said,"Good luck to Varun. One Nehru whose blood is 100 percent Hindustaniyat. No wonder Booze and Buddhu jealous (sic)."

Swamy was referring to the war of words exchanged between Varun Gandhi and his cousin Priyanka Gandhi. Priyanka, in a rally in Sultanpur on Monday had said that Varun should be voted out as he was a Gandhi who had been "led astray".

Meanwhile, Varun who filed his nomination papers from Sultanpur on Monday , hit back at Priyanka saying,""It is my request to all that instead of personal attacks, we debate unemployment, corruption, poverty and illiteracy. My inherent decency and largeheartedness should not be construed as weakness by anyone."

After Swamy's comment, the Congress has said that it would complain to the Election Commission. However, he said,"If they have a problem with what I said, they can approach the court."
