Even as former state Congress president Ashok Tanwar announced support to the JJP on Wednesday, his wife Avantika Maken Tanwar said that she was born in the Congress and will remain in it till her last breath.
She said in an interview to a national daily that for her the Congress means Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. Avantika has been close to the Gandhi parivaar ever since her parents were gunned down by Sikh extremists in Delhi when she was just 6-yrs-old.
“I am too much disturbed by the developments. As a wife, I am with Ashok Tanwar. But at political level, I have nothing to do with his decision”.
“Everyone knows who are the people responsible for my husband’s exit from the Congress. Gandhi family is not to blame for it. I am going to vote for the Congress, but I won’t campaign for anyone with my husband,” Avantika told The Tribune.
She said her family has always believed that for us “uppar Bhagwan hai, aur neeche Rahul Gandhi” .
Meanwhile, Tanwar who has extended support to Dushyant Chautala’s JPP, said he is not joining the JPP.
He had resigned from the primary membership of the Congress a few days back after he was replaced by Kumari Selja as Haryana Cong unit president.
