Rahul Gandhi should drop his surname as it was “stolen” by his family for political gains, BJP leader Sambit Patra claimed on Sunday, a day after the Congress scion refused to apologise for his “rape in India” remark saying he is not “Rahul Savarkar”.

Addressing a press conference, Patra said former prime minister Indira Gandhi had called Savarkar “son of soil”, while her grandson was referring to him in a derogatory note. “They stole the Gandhi name for political gains. He should give up the name of Gandhi. You (Rahul Gandhi) are a political deserter,” Patra alleged.
