Amethi: The presence of young Rehan and Miraya, the two children of Priyanka Gandhi in electioneering in Amethi and Rae Bareli on Thursday revived among old Congress supporters here memories of days when late Rajiv Gandhi used to bring his family for campaigning.
Senior citizen Baburam remembered Rajiv Gandhi in 1984-89 when the young Rahul and Priyanka often accompanied him.
"It was here that the two Gandhi children apparently learned the basics of politics and got to know the reality of real India and today we saw a kind of history being repeated", said Congress district unit president CSM Nagar Prem Narain Tewari.
Rahul and Priyanka along with their father had often visited religious and spiritual places like the mazar of Malik Mohammad Jaisi, Tikarmafi ashram and Nand Mahar, Ram Murti Shukla, a former block pramukh of Amethi said.
