New Delhi: After playing a crisis manager to build consensus within the Bharatiya Janata Party on Narendra Modi`s elevation as prime ministerial candidate, BJP general secretary Ananth Kumar on Thursday targeted Congress for practising dynastic politics.
In BJP, people are elected in democratic manner, Kumar said.
Targeting Congress party in which dynastic politics is prevalent, Kumar said selection is not an issue in the ruling party since "Wahah to jo banega, Janam se banega, karam se nahi".
Kumar was clearly talking about Rahul, the 42-year-old scion of the Gandhi dynasty.
The battle between the BJP and the Congress is set to be one between Narendra Modi, the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate, and Rahul Gandhi, the Congress party’s not-willing-to-be-PM candidate.
