India is obliged to the Gandhis: Congress leader PC Chacko calls them ‘the first family’ of India

PC Chacko thinks being a Gandhi is the default way of ascending to power.

Taking sycophancy to another level, Congress leader PC Chacko today hailed Gandhis as the first family of India and scorned PM Modi for being ‘negative’ towards them. Chacko went on to attribute everything that the country achieved in the last seventy years to the ‘planning and initiatives’ conceived by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.

“PM Modi holds a negative opinion about the first family of India. What did India have when it got Independence? Nothing, India is now a space power because of Nehru. Everything the country has achieved, the White Revolution, the Green revolution was achieved due to Jawaharlal Nehru’s planning and initiatives. India is now self-sustaining because of Nehru and the first family’s contribution. India is obliged to them,” PC Chacko said.

Chacko also weighed in that Rahul Gandhi is a rightful heir to the position of PM since he belongs to the ‘first family’ who immensely contributed to the nation building. According to him, Gandhi surname is enough qualification for him to stake a claim at PM position and that his ancestors’ ‘contribution’ to the country is sufficient a testimony to Rahul Gandhi’s efficiency and administrative prowess.

PC Chacko thinks being a Gandhi is the default way of ascending to power. However, he forgets that India is not a constitutional monarchy where the royal family is hailed, accorded uncritical admiration and the government works under its auspices. India is, in fact, a democracy where meritocracy trumps aristocracy. It is a system where the power is vested in people to choose their representative and send them to parliament. Perhaps, it is a tall ask to expect servile Congress ministers who have spent their entire life serving the ‘first family’ to understand what it means to toil for the nation.

PM Modi’s move to announce the accomplishment of Mission Shakti has rattled many Congress supporters and loyalists with several Congress leaders jumping in to claim credit and ascribing the DRDO’s achievement to one of the Congress’ founding fathers Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.
