In US, what Rahul said about dynasty, Modi’s communication skills, ‘BJP abuse machine’, Kashmir
Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi spoke about a range of issues in an address in the US on Tuesday, but what he said about ‘dynastic succession’, by invoking actor Abhishek Bachchan and industrialist Mukesh Ambani, was particularly noteworthy and brought to mind of a recent ‘nepotism’ controversy in the Hindi film industry.
When asked about criticism of ‘dynastic succession, after he spoke at the University of California, Berkeley, Rahul did call it a “problem” but added that is the way “most of the country runs”.
“It’s a problem in all political parties in India. Most of the country runs like this, so don’t go after me, Akhilesh Yadav a dynast, Mr Stalin a dynast, Mr (Prem Kumar) Dhumal’s son a dynast, so don’t just go after me…Even Mr. Abhishek Bachchan is a dynast, also Mr Ambani, that’s what happens in India.”
