New Delhi, Apr 16 (UNI) Branding the Congress as the party of sycophants, the BJP today mocked at the ruling party leaders and ministers for vying with each other in showering praise on the Gandhi family.
Reacting to the projection of Mr Rahul Gandhi as future prime minister by a minister, the party said it was an insult to the incumbent Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
''The minister concerned has surpassed all limits of sycophancy,'' the party said.
Talking to newspersons, BJP Parliamentary Party spokesman Vijay Kumar Malhotra described such projection were unfortunate and said it was upto the Prime Minister to explain his position.
He said sycophancy had been the Congress culture from the very beginning and during its rule all projects and schemes were named after either Rajiv Gandhi, Indira Gandhi or Jawaharlal Nehru.
There has been just one family, no others, who has done anything good for the country as per the Congress history, he said.
The fact remained that Ms Sonia Gandhi liked sycophancy, and was befooling the people by expressing herself against this habit, Mr Malhotra said.
