Congress President Rahul Gandhi said on Saturday that he and his sister Priyanka Gandhi had"completely forgiven their father Rajiv Gandhi's killers

Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Monday claimed that the act of Congress Party President Rahul Gandhi forgiving the killers of his father, Rajiv Gandhi, raised suspicion of "supari killing" or a plotted murder for financial gains.

The Congress President in an earlier interaction with Indian Institute of Management (IIM) alumni in Singapore had reportedly stated that he and his sister, Priyanka Gandhi, have "completely forgiven" his father's killers, as they found it hard to hate people, although the assassination had deeply angered and hurt them for several years. We knew that my grandmother was going to die. But somehow, (we have) completely... in fact, completely (forgiven them). "However, he (Rajiv Gandhi) was only acting upon a motion passed in Parliament stating that Sri Lanka had asked for assistance to fight the LTTE, as they could not do so alone", the 78-year-old Member of Parliament went on to say before demanding a probe in the assassination. That's where you get caught. When I saw Prabhakaran lying dead on TV (in 2009), I got two feelings - first was why they are humiliating this man in this way.

"And second was.I felt really bad for him and for his kids", said Gandhi during the interactive session.

"We feel the seriousness of the issue only when we personally experience it". I literally find it hard to hate people, even my sister does. Though all 26 were sentenced to death by the TADA court, the sentences of quite a few was reduced to life imprisonment. There has always been much speculation that it was not just the LTTE, but other forces were also behind the killing, a factor that was probed by the Jain commission. Gandhi said: "We knew that my father was going to die".

"In politics, we deal with forces, big forces, which are normally not visible. Those are not visible but they can hurt you", he added.

Rajiv Gandhi, who became Prime Minister by accident when his mother Indira Gandhi fell to her own guards' bullets in 1984, was assassinated at Sriperumbudur off Chennai on 20th May, 1990 when he was about to address an election meeting; Dhanu, a female suicide bomber, set off the explosion. Seven main accused in the assassination are still languishing in prisons in Tamil Nadu even after 27 years.
