Shah described the BJP as the only party in the country in which internal democracy prevails.

"Dynasticism is a trait of the Congress. Dont impose it on the country Rahul ji", Shah said, addressing a conference of intellectuals here tonight.

He said his own rise to the BJPs top post, despite a non-political family background, is a testimony to the fact that the party gives importance to an individuals abilities and not his lineage.

"I began by putting up party posters and banners and now I head the worlds largest political party. It could have been possible only in a party like BJP which believes in internal democracy," Shah said.

    He said no one in the country has any doubt on who would succeed Sonia Gandhi as Congress president but asked if anyone knew who the next BJP president would be.

    "Rahul will succeed Sonia, Mulayam has already been succeeded by Akhilesh, Lalus sons will succeed him. These are things no one has any doubt about. Apart from BJP all other political parties have become family centric which place family interest above all else," Shah said.

    BJP is a party with a difference because it is rooted in a different ideology, the basic principles of cultural nationalism and concern for the development of the man who stands at the lowest rung of the social ladder, he said.

    He, however said that Modi administration a blend of tradion and modernity.
