Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar taking jibe on the Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on his remark on ‘dynasties are a fact in India’ on Monday during a public interaction said, “Parivarwad (family hegemony) is acceptable in Indian politics is not true,”
Kumar further added, “Rahul Gandhi’s comment in US last week that dynasties are commonplace in India is unacceptable to the country.”
The Bihar chief also said, “To say that a person born into a political family has merit to rule is wrong. If comparison is made, non-dynasts in high positions have performed better than the ones compared to dynasts.”
Kumar during the public hearing further said that the Congress has generated dynastic politics in India, which is now slowing spreading to other parties.
“I am personally against dynastic politics,” said the Bihar chief minister.
Rahul Gandhi early this month while speaking at University of California, Berkeley had said, “Most parties in India have , have that problem. Mr Akhilesh Yadav is a dynast. Mr Stalin (son of M Karunanidhi in DMK) is a dynast... Even Abhishek Bachchhan is a dynast. So, that's how India runs. So, don't get after me because that's how India is run".
