New Delhi: Mahatma Gandhi's granddaughter Tara Gandhi Bhattacharjee on Monday said she was deeply hurt by the 'chatur baniya' comment by BJP President Amit Shah on Friday.

"As a biological grandaughter of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, my natural reaction is of deep hurt. Mahatma Gandhi is the Father of the Nation, and I also want to express my objective reaction as an Indian citizen," a release quoted Bhattacharjee as saying.
