Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday revived the debate on dynastic politics, telling a US audience that dynasties are common in India. On Indian dynasties, he said, “Actually, most parties in India have that problem, so don’t give us stick. Mr Akhilesh Yadav (Samajwadi Party) is a dynast. Mr Stalin (Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) is a dynast… Even Abhishek Bachchan (Bollywood actor) is a dynast. The one person to benefit from his address is Laloo Preasad Yadav as he thinks that even Rahul Gandhi acknowledges the fact that RJD is far away from dynastic politics and people of Bihar have full power to choose which of his two sons will become CM.
Faking News reporter caught up with Laloo yadav and he had this to say,” Right from the day I introduced both of my sons to politics, I had told them that I won’t select either of them to become CM as that power completely rests with the people in a democracy. All I can do is provide equal opportunities to both my sons which I am doing, after that it is the people of Bihar who will use their democratic power to let us know which of my son deserves the CM post.”
Though elections in Bihar are sometime away, people at least feel that unlike some of the other parties RJD is giving them two options and thats the reason they are grateful to Laloo Prasad Yadav. Both Tejasvi and Tejasvini Yadav have promised Laloo that they will not waste this opportunity bestowed upon them and use their communication power to reach out to people. Taking clue from Laloo Yadav, Rahul Gandhi has requested Sonia Gandhi to project both him and Priyanka for the PM’s post and then let people decide their future.
