Know- Who is Priyanka Gandhi’s aunt?
Priyanka Gandhi has written on Instagram that today on the day of Ashtami, I went to the house of my father Rajiv Gandhi’s Rakhi sister for Kanya Puja. Going there brought back many old memories. Panditji had brought him from Jammu. His father worked as a watchman. She used to tie rakhi to my father and uncle. Indira Gandhi got him married. He died due to Corona. Yesterday his son told that he is worshiping Kanya for the first time without him, so today he went to his house and worshiped Kanya.
