India’s late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s son Rahul said he felt bad when he saw the body of Prabhakaran, who killed his father, Indian media reported.
While addressing a business community at Vadodara in Gujurat on Monday, he said his family followed Mahatma Gandhi’s values and he felt bad when he saw the body of his father Rajiv’s assailant.
“My family has Gandhi Ji’s values. I felt bad when I saw body of my father’s killer Prabhakaran. I shared this even with Priyanka, she said she felt bad too,” he said.
Meanwhile, he said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) helped him by defeating his party in 2014.
“BJP helped me a lot, the Lok Sabha election we lost in 2014 proved to be very beneficial for us. By defeating the Congress, BJP taught me a lot,” Rahul said.

Very good politically correct response in the context now even though inside he must be really mad - because a few more years of Rajiv would have paved the way for him. But then this will help him get nearer the Tamilnadu voters. Typical politician to make the best of a situation..

You only had shown dead body of your father and Mr.Praba but never ever chance to seen and hear, around 10 000 of civilians massacred by your father' so called Peace Keeping (killing) forces. Rajiv and family' voice and tears are nothing make any sense of S Tamils. Because, your father had dug his own grave

Your father and grandmother pampered him and nourished him in many ways and finally your dad became his victim . WE also feel bad for thousands of innocent civilians who sacrificed their lives because of that Barbarian .

We felt the same way when we saw your Grand Mother, Indira Gandhi's body. She was the one responsible for training and arming the Tigers which resulted in absolute carnage, deaths of thousands of innocent men, women

don't insult Gandhiji by saying your family has Gandhiji's values.Gandhiji never made any money out of politics or thought it was his or his families birth right to rule India

Rahul, Didn't you feel bad when you saw or heard LTTE killing thousands of innocent Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim men and women in Sri Lanka? Just curious to know.

Wait what! Did Prabhakaran die again or what... It is nice to forgive those who did bad to you... But what happened to your dad was past... SL did what should be done to protect a mass number of other lives who could be his next next victims... And at the same time feeling sad for him, feel a little honour to SL army for bringing him down for country's peace, people breath and live now...

This is what politicians do to take votes, but you should do better to take these votes as people are not fools.. at least not any more. you are neither real Gandhi nor god to feel bad about father's assassin. nobody got such a big heart.. definitely not you. You know what we feel bad about?? The people died during that long war irrespective of cast, creed and race. Now we want to live peacefully with our tamil, muslim and Sinhala people. Stop ruining our efforts and messing with our people's mind.

I felt bad when your grandmother supported and trained the militia later known as the LTTE in Sri Lanka. I Doubt your family had "Gandhi Ji" values then....and later your father forced Sri Lanka to sign agreements and later sent the Indian army (IPKF) etc., 30 yrs of civil war and unhealed wounds for so many in my country. Karma comes back to you Rahul, remember that in your political journey.At least you accept the fact that LTTE leader Prabhakaran ordered the killing of your father.

Typical politician - a joke to every intelligent mind in the world and a hero to the uncritical, the undiscriminating, the emotive. The latter unfortunately are the constituency these rabid jokers need to curry favour with to return to power. The sooner these jokers give up their political ambitions, the better for all human beings including true followers of Gandhiji.

Sri Lankans do not weep for this murderous creep Prabhakaran. He was responsible directly and indirectly for the death of thousands of innocent Sinhala, Tamil, Muslim and other Sri Lankans. The destruction of the nations assets for 20/30 years. He lies in the deep pits of hell where he truly belongs. GROBR.

Your father created him and your mother killed him. Is this Gandhi Ji’s values your family following ? We Sri Lankans lost thousands of incent people because of your family game.
