Gadkari attacks Rahul; criticises dynasty politics

Written by: Staff

Indore, Feb 18: After being compared to Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi for having lunch in a Dalit's house, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Nitin Gadkari hits out at Rahul, stating that his party did not believe in dynastic politics on Thursday, Feb 18 .

Gadkari's first presidential speech in the BJP leadership meet in Indore was more of an attacked on the Congress family.

"I was a simple worker of a party and today I am its president. This can happen only in the BJP. The BJP is not like other political parties where dynasty rules. My father was not the prime minister of the country, neither were my maternal great grandfather nor grandmother. We are a party with a difference," he said.

The speech was a direct reference to Rahul, whose father Rajiv Gandhi, grandmother Indira Gandhi and great grandfather Jawaharlal Nehru were all prime ministers.

Prior to his presidential speech, Gadkari's leadership was ratified by the national council. He was welcomed with garlands from his senior leaders, who hailed presidentship.

He was elected as the president of the party in Dec 2009 and took charge in Feb 2010.
