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.

Bharatiya Janata Party or BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Monday claimed that Rahul Gandhi forgiving his father Rajiv Gandhi's killers raises suspicion of "supari" killing or a plotted murder for financial gains.

"In politics, if you stand for something, you will die.You are dealing with structures that are powerful", Gandhi said.

Reacting to a question that there is a common political perception among Congress rivals that Sonia Gandhi was in actual power at the time of UPA government when Manmohan Singh was the Prime Minister, she said, "I don't think it was that kind of a situation".

"We have forgiven our father's killers".

"My grandmother told me she was going to die and my father". But, somehow, completely.in fact, completely (forgiven).

Describing his emotions and observations Rahul Gandhi said, "There is a history that when one realises that when these events take place, it's collision of ideas, forces, confusion".

"In politics, we deal with forces, big forces, which are normally not visible". 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 and I did that because I understood deeply what it meant to be on the other side of that thing".

"My father and grandmother fell to terrorists' bullets as they were fighting for a cause", Rahul said and added that "Ironically, I was a 14-year old boy who had even played badminton with my grand-mother's assassins". "And to correct that bias, equality is not good enough, you have to be partial to women and give them more support than you give men", he said.

The Tamil Nadu government had written to the Centre earlier, expressing its intent to release Perarivalan, Murugan, Santhan, Nalini, Robert Pious, Jayakumar and Ravichandran - all serving life terms for assassinating former Prime Minister Gandhi in 1991.
