In a mother of all ironies, Rahul Gandhi accused Telangana CM of dynasty politics

In what is referred to as a ‘scathing attack’ by Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, the former accused the Telangana chief minister of dynasty politics saying that only ‘one family’ government is running the state.

KCR, as the Telangana chief minister is often referred to, started his political career with Congress under the leadership of Sanjay Gandhi. However, he later joined Telugu Desam Party in 1983 before forming the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) in 2001. His son, KT Rama Rao is a legislator from Sircilla Rajanna District, previous Karimnagar district, Telangana and is the cabinet minister for IT, Municipal Administration & Urban Development Departments. His daughter Kalvakunthla Kavitha is an MP from Nizamabad, Telangana and his nephew Harish Rao is an MLA from Siddipet constituency and also a cabinet minister.

Perhaps Congress social media team should hold a class of ‘Know Your Legacy’ with their party president Rahul Gandhi explaining how Congress has perpetuated dynasty politics.

Rahul Gandhi’s great-grandfather, Jawaharlal Nehru was India’s first prime minister, from 1947 to 1964 when he died. For a total of 16 years, 286 days.

His grandmother, Indira Gandhi was in power for a total of 11 years, 59 days, between 1966 to 1977. She lost elections after she lifted the Emergency she had enforced. However, re-elected as Prime Minister on 14th January 1980 where she served as the Prime Minister for 4 years and 291 days before she was assassinated on 31st October 1984.

On Indira Gandhi’s assassination, her son and Rahul Gandhi’s father Rajiv Gandhi was made the Prime Minister within hours of her murder. The government was later dissolved and Rajiv was made the President of Congress. Riding on a sympathy wave, Congress won by a landslide victory. Rajiv Gandhi served as Prime Minister of India for 5 years and 32 days.

Following Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination in 1991, Sonia Gandhi ‘chose’ to stay away from politics, but after joining Congress as a primary member in 1997, within a year, she was made the Party President. She was the Congress President for 19 long years before giving it up for her son, Rahul Gandhi in December 2017. While Sonia never swore in as the Prime Minister of the country, for the ten years that Congress was in power from 2004 to 2014, she was the chairperson of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) a coalition of centre-left political parties.

In 71 years of Indian independence, the family members of Nehru-Gandhi dynasty have been prime ministers of India for a total of 37 years and 303 days.

Great-grandson of Jawaharlal Nehru, grandson of Indira Gandhi and son of Rajiv Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, who is Congress’ prime ministerial candidate for the upcoming 2019 elections has just accused KCR of ‘dynasty politics’.

Irony just obtained escape velocity of Jupiter and turned a shikanji seller into the owner Coca-cola.
