Amethi: The presence of young Rehan and
Miraya, the two children of Priyanka Gandhi in electioneering
in Amethi and Rae Bareli on Thursday revived among old Congress
supporters here memories of days when late Rajiv Gandhi used
to bring his family for campaigning.

Senior citizen Baburam remembered Rajiv Gandhi in 1984-89
when the young Rahul and Priyanka often accompanied him.

"It was here that the two Gandhi children apparently
learned the basics of politics and got to know the reality of
real India and today we saw a kind of history being repeated",
said Congress district unit president CSM Nagar Prem Narain
Tewari.

Rahul and Priyanka along with their father had often
visited religious and spiritual places like the mazar of Malik
Mohammad Jaisi, Tikarmafi ashram and Nand Mahar, Ram Murti
Shukla, a former block pramukh of Amethi said.
