Nehru loyalist Ramachandra Guha says ‘Dynasty must be dumped’

Guha asserted that people, especially younger Indians find it unacceptable that a fifth-generation dynast was appointed as President of India's oldest political party only because of his family name.

As almost all the Exit Polls suggested a BJP-led NDA government at the centre, many so-called intellectuals have made scathing remarks on the opposition party Congress and its inefficiency to put up a strong fight against the saffron party. After Yogendra Yadav said that Congress must die, self-proclaimed scholar and a Nehru loyalist Rama Guha has now asked the Congress party to salvage itself by dumping the Gandhi dynasty.

Guha asserted that the new India is less feudal at the bottom rungs and more authoritarian towards the top. He contended that people, especially younger Indians find it unacceptable that a fifth-generation dynast was appointed as President of India’s oldest political party only because whose son and grandson he is.

Guha has asserted that for the Congress to live, the dynasty must be dumped.

Even Congress loyalist Rajdeep Sardesai had slammed the opposition leaders for raising the false bogey of EVM fraud after the exit poll data hinted BJP sweep in the elections. Rajdeep argued that the allegations levelled by opposition leaders are unsubstantiated and are made purely for political reasons. Lauding PM Modi for turning Varanasi into a VVIP constituency, he claimed that the overhaul of ghats, the improvement in the cityscape, broader roads and interrupted supply of electricity in Varanasi should be credited to PM Modi.
