A Congress MLC from Uttar Pradesh has posted a letter on Twitter, claiming a youngster from Amethi had "penned it with his blood" urging the Election Commission of India to restrain Prime Minister Narendra Modi from making objectionable remarks.

Manoj Kashyap of Shahgarh in Amethi has written that he was "traumatised" by Modi's comments against late Rajiv Gandhi.

Kashyap, in his letter, wrote that the former prime minister lowered the voting age to 18 years, implemented the Panchayati Raj system, and brought in the computer revolution in the country.

"Former Prime Minister late Atal Bihari Vajpayee had also praised Rajiv Gandhi in an article," he pointed out.

He further wrote that for the people of Amethi anyone who insults Rajiv Gandhi is akin to those who assassinated him.

Kashyap wrote that Rajiv Gandhi lives on in the hearts of the people of Amethi and also the country and the Prime Minister must be directed not to make such remarks against the late leader.

The youngster's letter to the EC comes close on the heels of PM Modi referring to late Rajiv Gandhi as 'Bhrashtachari No I' at a recent election rally.

Kashyap further said that his letter had no political overtones and he felt emotionally connected to the late leader.

Congress MLC Deepak Singh had shared the letter on his personal handle.
