Priyanka and I have 'completely forgiven' father's killers: Rahul

Priyanka and I Have Completely Forgiven Father Rajiv's Killers Rahul Gandhi in Singapore

Gandhi also met Subramaniam Sathasivam, president of the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) in Kuala Lumpur.

Gandhi is on a five-day trip to the Southeast Asian countries.

"That is how I would have rolled it out, because that is what I think should have been done with the demonetisation which was not good at all", he said in a video shared by the Congress party on its Twitter handle.

In a deeply introspective speech, Congress leader Sonia Gandhi on Friday spoke on a wide range of topics, including her children, her own shortcomings and the role of democracy in India, the first time she has opened up since relinquishing the party president post. But, somehow, fact, completely (forgiven). That's where you get caught. "I and Priyanka were in agony and were angry over our father's killers for many years; now, however, we have forgiven them", he said. "I remember when I saw Mr Prabhakaran on TV lying dead, I got two feelings - one was why they are humiliating this man in this way".

"And second was.I felt really bad for him and for his kids", said Gandhi during the interactive session.

LTTE, a militant organisation from Sri Lanka, led by Velupillai Prabhakaran was found responsible for plotting and executing the assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. I have been through a lot of pain to get this and it is something I consider very valuable. After that my father was killed.

"My father and grandmother fell to terrorists' bullets as they were fighting for a cause", Rahul said and added that "Ironically, I was a 14-year old boy who had even played badminton with my grand-mother's assassins".

Rahul went on to say that his family "knew" that his father and grandmother, former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, were "going to die" by virtue of being in politics and trying to bring about change.

"My grandmother told me she was going to die and my father". So you live in a particular environment... surrounded by 15 guys from morning noon and night, I don't thinks that's a privilege. Out through the door and into the junkyard, because that's what I think should be done with demonetisation'.
