Rahul Gandhi in Rajasthan
Jodhpur, Oct 23: Speaking about Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi's assassinations, Rahul asserted that he is not afraid of being killed."My grandmother was killed. My father was assassinated and perhaps I may also be killed one day. I am not bothered. I had to tell you what I felt from the heart," Rahul said and vowed to oppose BJP's politics.

"Anybody can get angry. The anger is deliberately put into people. Politicians do it. Interested party does it. And then the common man, who is hurt has to carry this anger with him. He moves everywhere with this anger. That is why I am against the politics of BJP. Because what they do is that they hurt (people) for political gains."
