Responding to Modi's comment, calling the Congress Party a '125-year-old woman', Priyanka had said this in Hindi - 'Do I look old? Does Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi or I look old to you?

Commenting on her cousin, Varun Gandhi's alleged hate-speech; Priyanka had a word of advice for him - 'Varun's comments are against the traditions and principles of the (Gandhi) family and he has gone against what the Gandhis have lived and died for... It made me very sad to see him saying those things on TV. I would advise him (Varun) to read the Gita and try to understand it.'
