Darpan News Desk IANS, 18 Jul, 2019

    As the world celebrates Nelson Mandela’s 101st birth anniversary, Congress’ general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra wrote a tribute for the South African anti-apartheid icon with a caption saying he had told her ‘she ought to be in politics’.

     

    Calling Mandela an inspiration and a guide, Priyanka said his life is a ‘testament to truth, love and freedom’.

     
     

    The Congress leader put out a picture of herself with her son and the former South African president on Twitter and wrote: “The world misses men like Nelson Mandela more than ever today. His life was a testament to truth, love and freedom. To me, he was Uncle Nelson (who told me I ought to be in politics long before anyone else did!). He will always be my inspiration and my guide.”

     

    Priyanka made her political debut in January when Congress appointed her general secretary for Uttar Pradesh East.
