It seems that Gopalkrishna Gandhi, the Vice-Presidential candidate of the Opposition has a critic within his own family. 

Shrikrishna Kulkarni, the grandson of Ramdas Gandhi and the great-grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, had written a letter to Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi telling him to stop fooling people in the name of Mahatma Gandhi and to Gopalkrishna Gandhi to question his endorsement of Congress.

In the letter, he wrote how most of the members of the Gandhi family had moved on from Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination, but the current crop of Congress top brass are still harping on history.

“My humble suggestion, you folks who own Congress and your goof self should move on and quit milking the name Gandhi and this issue for your selfish benefits,” he said.

“To keep harping that the RSS killed Gandhi is akin to saying the Tamils killed your father, which would be a petty falsehood isn’t it? A couple of guys don’t make for a community.”

In the letter, he also asked Rahul Gandhi to stop fooling people.

In another letter addressed to his uncle Gopalkrishna Gandhi, Kulkarni said that he was disappointed to see him filing for Vice-Presidential candidature flanked this family of dynastic politics. He stated that this family does not deserve to be linked with anything to do with Mahatma Gandhi.

He also said that Gandhiji committed a mistake by appointing Jawaharlal Nehru the Prime Minister over Sardar Vallabhai Patel. He said that the progeny of Nehru had made a mockery of all that Gandhiji stood for and he cannot bear to see it happen anymore.
