India Hasn’t Witnessed A More Vicious Campaign Than The One Against Rahul Gandhi: Dia Mirza
The actor praised his "fortitude, gravitas and humility".
Bollywood actress Dia Miraz recently took to Twitter to praise Congress president Rahul Gandhi. Reacting to an India Today feature on Rahul Gandhi titled, “From naamdar to kaamdar: Rahul Gandhi the Challenger”, Mirza wrote, “I don’t think India has witnessed a more vicious campaign against an individual in politics than the one that was launched and sustained against Rahul Gandhi.”
She added, referring to the piece, “My biggest take away from this article is his fortitude, gravitas and humility.”
This comment is NOT a political comment. It’s purely a response as human being. I’ve witnessed an individual attacked persistently and in the face of the attack that human being has displayed incredible strength of character. #RahulGandhi

As the Lok Sabha polls continue, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party’s rhetoric has turned more and more toxic. Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently attacked Rahul Gandhi. Modi took a deeply insensitive former prime minister and Gandhi’s late father Rajiv Gandhi and said, “Your father was termed ‘Mr Clean’ by his courtiers, but his life ended as ‘Bhrastachari number 1‘ (corrupt number 1)”.
