"Prime Minister Narendra Modi is right in saying that Rajiv Gandhi was corrupt number one, but he was also India's biggest mob lyncher," he alleged in a statement.

He further alleged that Rajiv Gandhi not only encouraged genocide against Sikhs but he also protected and rewarded those who were involved in the attack.

Speaking at an election rally in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday, PM Modi has attacked late Rajiv Gandhi while taking a jibe at his son and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi. He had said, "Your father was termed Mr Clean by his courtiers, but his life ended as bhrashtachari (corrupt) no 1."
