Kapil Sibal’s bizarre defence of Congress’ dynastic politics, calls RSS ‘the biggest dynasty’

The unvarnished truth on 'dynasty politics' which Prime Minister shared in a blog earlier today seems to have gone and hit the Congress party's wrong nerve.

Senior Congress leader and the former law union minister, Kapil Sibal in a bizarre defence over the ‘dynasty politics’ accusation by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has dragged the Sangh Parivar (RSS) into the matter.

Kapil Sibal, in his attempt to defend the Congress party, said, “BJP and Modi are ruining this nation by the dynasty politics of the Sangh Parivar. What is Sangh Parivar, except for a dynasty? Whoever is to be a CM, whether he belongs to Goa or somewhere else belongs to the Sangh Parivar. The PM of India must belong to the Sangh Parivar. All important portfolios in the government must be given to the Sangh Parivar. This is the biggest parivar which is the dynasty which is ruling our country. So what is the Prime Minister talking about? He should have some sense of history, some sense of perspective,” he added.

The unvarnished truth on ‘dynasty politics’ which Prime Minister shared in a blog earlier today seems to have gone and hit the Congress party’s wrong nerve.

Prior to this, Congress senior leader, Tariq Anwar, had also come up with a ludicrous defence and while following the standard procedure the Congress members generally adhere to, insulted PM Modi saying Modi has no ‘vansh’ hence he is against dynasty politics.

Justifying dynastic politics, Anwar said that Prime Minister Modi is taking on the ‘dynastic politics’ because Modi himself has no family to take the ‘legacy’ forward. He further justified that such nepotism is prevalent in all professions and hence nothing wrong in politics either.

The Prime Minister had through his blog earlier today, taken a dig at the Congress’ dynastic politics culture. In his blog, he highlighted the negative impact dynasty politics has had on the institutions of the country over the years. Modi had written that the mandate of 2014 was epoch-making also because it was for the first time in the history of India that a non-dynastic party was blessed with a complete majority.

Flinging subtle jibe’s at the Congress he went on to write, “When a Government works with the spirit of ‘India First’ instead of ‘Family First’, it shows in its working”.

Prime Minister Modi has regularly trained his gun on the nepotism and dynastic politics of the Congress party.

Truly so, India has been for decades controlled by the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty. The current President of Congress, Rahul Gandhi is former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s son, Indira Gandhi’s grandson and Jawaharlal Nehru’s great-grandson. His mother, Sonia Gandhi was also the party president for almost two decades before Rahul Gandhi took over.
