The Congress workers, who were extremely upset over Swamy’s remarks, also said that they would approach the Election Commission of India in this regard.

“He is trying to vitiate the atmosphere by making baseless allegations,” Delhi Congress chief spokesperson Mukesh Sharma told the media on Monday.

On Monday, the Congress had called for a protest outside Swamy's residence in Delhi’s Nizamuddin area demanding his immediate suspension from the BJP.

Swamy’s remarks came in context of media reports that Priyanka wanted to contest against BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi from the Varanasi Lok Sabha seat.

Priyanka, however, rubbished reports that she wanted to challenge Modi and was stopped by the Congress High Command.
