Rae Bareli: Priyanka Gandhi on Monday slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for its brazen attacks on her husband Robert Vadra over his alleged `fraudulent land deals.`

Taking the principle Opposition party on while campaigning for her mother Congress president Sonia Gandhi here, Priyanka said, "Personal jibes and attacks on my family don`t bother me.`

Priyanka has chosen only to campaign for her mother in Rae Bareli and for her brother Rahul Gandhi in Amethi. Both the constituencies fall in Uttar Pradesh.

Confident of a good show by the Congress in Rae Bareli, she felt there was no challenge from the others in contention and said, "Yahan koi chunauti nahi hain, yahan (Rae Bareli) Sonia ji jeetengi. "

Following the BJP`s allegaion that her husband Robert Vadra had indulged in fraudulent and unscrupulous land deals to the tune of Rs 300 crore, an aggressive Priyanka on Sunday had said that the BJP were running around like `agitated rats`.
Talking to reporters after addressing a public meeting yesterday, she said, “Let them do what they want. I am not scared of them. I am not scared of anything,” adding, “They are acting like agitated rats. I knew they would resort to this during elections.”

Priyanka also said that she would continue to speak against BJP`s negative politics.

She hit the campaign trail only recently and has concentrated only on Amethi and Rae Bareli. Priyanka has been vocal against the BJP and slammed Modi for his divisive politics and `snoopgate`. 

The Congress has also accused Modi of having gifted land to the Adani group in Gujarat at a minimal price. 

Rae Bareli goes to polls on April 30, while Amethi will exercise its voting rights on May 7. The counting of votes is scheduled for May 16.
