NEW DELHI - Rahul Gandhi, heir to India's Nehru-Gandhi family, has sparked a political storm.
Gandhi, 36, has been the mascot of the ruling Congress Party in the election campaign in Uttar Pradesh.
He has been on a barnstorming tour of the province and remarks he made have apparently embarrassed his own party and government, and provoked a diplomatic spat with neighbouring Pakistan.
First, Gandhi said that had his family been in power in 1992 it would have stopped Hindu mobs from razing a controversial mosque in Uttar Pradesh. The destruction of the mosque, while veteran Congress leader PV Narasimha Rao was prime minister, triggered some of India's worst Hindu-Muslim violence.
Then last week Gandhi claimed family credit for India getting independence from the UK in 1947 and said his family was responsible for the division of Pakistan and the creation of Bangladesh in 1971.
Politicians said Gandhi was attacking a dead prime minister from his own party, while his " winning independence" claim ignored contributions by others in India's freedom movement.
The comment on Bangladesh's creation has annoyed Pakistan.
"We have known all along there have been efforts to destabilise Pakistan," said foreign ministry spokesman Tasnim Aslam. "This is a clear admission by a scion of a family ruling India." - Reuters
