Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack at 'dynastic politics' while addressing a mega rally in Delhi's Ramlila Maidan on Wednesday, May 8. Naming 'dynastic politics' from each state of the country, the Prime Minister slammed those who suppress the talent and efficiency of those who rise from the lower rungs of the society.
Addressing the rally, he said: "The country is seeing the fourth generation of a dynastic family of Congress but their'dynasty politics' is not limited till Congress. People who have been closer to this family, they have also started raising the flag of 'dynasty'.
The Prime Minister then listed all the families in politics:
"In Delhi, Dikshit generation is going on, in Haryana there is the Hooda family, from Bhajanlal to Bansilal, there is only dynastic politics. In Rajasthan, Gehlot family and Pilot family, in Madhya Pradesh Scindia family, Kamal Nath family and Digvijaya family are raising the flag of dynastic politics. This is spread in 'Mahamilavat' parties as well. In Jammu and Kashmir, Abdullah and Mufti family, in Uttar Pradesh Mulayam Singh ji's family, in Bihar it is in Lalu ji's name that politics is going on. In Maharashtra the Pawar family is there, in Karnataka Deve Gowda, in Tamil Nadu Karunanidhi's family, in Andhra Pradesh Chandrababu Naidu is also trying dynasty politics."
He then slammed these leaders saying that they try to suppress those who have the talent and work hard to achieve something.
The PM said: "In the name of justice and secularism they suppress those who have risen from the lower rungs of society. They try to suppress those who rose from poverty. They suppress the talent of deserving people. In the 21st century, how can such people lead the country? That is why when I question their dynastic politics, when I dig out the deeds of their forefathers, then they feel bad. They are infuriated. They want votes in the name of their fathers and forefathers but do not want to listen about their deeds."
