Rae Bareli, April 28: Priyanka Gandhi, who earlier had asked Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) not to make personal attacks during election campaigns, finally began avoiding all allegations against her family members.

During her campaign rallies at Rae Bareli, from where her mother and Congress President Sonia Gandhi is contesting, Priyanka said, "Personal jibes and attacks on my family don't bother me."

Priyanka's statement came just a day after when BJP leaders released a video hurling serious allegations against her husband Robert Vadra in connection with land deals in several states such as Haryana, Punjab and Rajasthan.

Earlier Priyanka slammed Modi over the latter's "ABCD" and "RSVP" jibes. Modi always uses "ABCD" -- Adarsha Society scam (A), Bofors (B), Coalgate scam (C) and "RSVP" -- Rahul (R), Sonia (S), Robert Vadra (V) and Priyanka (P) jibes to criticise Congress over several scams allegedly done by Congress ministers.

Replying to Modi's criticism, Priyanka said, "When you address people, tell them what you'll do for them; don't teach them English alphabet like RSVP, ABCD."

She also had hit out at Modi over snoopgate controversy. she asked the electorate not to vote for a person who believes in concentrating all powers with himself and exhorted them to reject divisive politics.

Taking on Modi without mentioning his name, she said, "If you want to empower women, how will you do that? You empower us by listening to phone conversations in closed rooms?"

She was clearly referring to the alleged snooping of a woman in Gujarat ostensibly on orders from Modi. Priyanka has been campaigning for her mother and Congress President Sonia Gandhi at Rae Bareli, Uttar Pradesh which goes on poll on April 30.
