BJP hits back at Rahul on dynasty politics

Hitting back at Rahul Gandhi for defending dynastic politics, the BJP on Tuesday reminded the Congress Vice President that the top three constitutional posts in the country are held by common people with merit and that democracy is not beholden to dynasty.

"The fact that he (Gandhi) says that dynast and dynasty are the very fulcrum in India is itself an anomaly. The three dignitaries (President, Vice President and Prime Minister) in the highest constitutional positions today are in themselves an indication that Indian democracy thrives and gives opportunity to merit and is not beholden to dynasty," Union Minister and BJP leader Smriti Irani told a press conference.

She was responding to the remarks of Rahul Gandhi about dynastic politics and that most of the country runs like this. "That's how India works," he had said during a talk at Berkeley University during his visit to the US.
