‘Even his unborn child will become Cong chief’


Lucknow: Defending tickets given to kin of party MLAs and MPs, BJP President Amit Shah on Saturday took a dig at Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi, saying if he were to get married, his yet-to-be-born child would be anointed the next leader of the opposition party. He was responding to a pointed query on whether giving tickets to family members of senior BJP leaders amounted to promoting dynastic rule.  He said Rahul Gandhi’s family was an example of dynastic politics in the country. “… it was decided that after Nehru, it would be Indira (Gandhi); after her, Rajiv bhai; and after him, Rahul Gandhi… that is what we are opposed to,” Amit Shah said.
