LUCKNOW: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, daughter of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Monday expressed the hope that the row between Law Minister Salman Khurshid and the Election Commission on his statement on the sub-quota for Muslims will be sorted out.

"These things do happen during elections... One is free to voice his opinion during elections. So is the Election Commission," Priyanka said while campaigning in Rae Bareli, the Lok Sabha constituency of her mother Sonia Gandhi.

"Hope the matter will be sorted out," she added.

The controversy was triggered by a letter from the poll panel to President Pratibha Patil Saturday, complaining about Khurshid's "defiant" attitude on his remarks on providing a job quota for minorities.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) wants the minister be sacked.
