Had told dad he would die: Rahul Gandhi

Kuala Lumpur: Nearly 27 years after the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said he and his sister, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, have “completely forgiven” their father's killers. Speaking to a large audience of IIM alumni at an interactive session in Singapore on Saturday, the Gandhi scion said, “We have forgiven our father's murderers. Whatever may be the reason, I don't like any violence of any kind.” Rahul went on to admit that the siblings knew their father would be killed someday. 'We knew that my father was going to die. We knew that my grandmother was going to die. In politics, when you mess with the wrong forces, and if you stand for something, you will die. That`s pretty clear. 'My grandmother told me she was going to die and my father...I told him he was going to die.'
