New Delhi, May 01: Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for allegedly indulging in politics over martyrs, saying his predecessors never did that for electoral gains. Addressing an election meeting here, Babbar said, "The children of farmers laid down their lives defending the country's borders while the people occupying the seats of power were playing politics over their martyrdom."

"Former prime ministers Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi sacrificed their lives for the country but never used the names of martyrs to derive political mileage," he added.
