    Taking to twitter Rahul wrote:"My father lived and died in the service of India. The views of a character on a fictional web series can never change that."

    He said unlike the BJP, he did not believe that the freedom of expression should be policed and remarks by a fictional character in the web series would not change his contribution to the country.

    The series has been in the news after a Congress worker filed a complaint in Kolkata against the streaming platform, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui and the producers for using an 'objectionable word' to describe late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
