'Cong protecting brother-sister, mother-son,' Nadda's dig at Gandhis

New Delhi, Oct 17 (IANS): BJP President JP Nadda on Saturday hit out at the Congress for allegedly protecting family members without naming any individuals but taking an apparent dig at dynastic politics as well as Sonia, Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi.

"Be it the Congress party or any regional outfit, people are busy protecting brother-sister, mother-son, or the son," said Nadda.

The BJP national president was addressing Uttarakhand BJP cadres while virtually laying the foundation stone of the Uttarakhand BJP office.

Though seemingly aimed at the Gandhis, Nadda's comment assumes significance as it comes soon after the Congress has given a ticket to Shatrughan Sinha's son Luv Sinha, which has been widely seen as Congress promoting family over cadres.

Taking another dig at his political rivals, Nadda said, "If a party office operates from a politician's residence, then the party belongs to that person."

He alleged that in the case of other parties, the family has become a party. However, he sought to bring a contrast by suggesting, "In our case, the party is our family".

He also alleged that other political parties have started to "copy BJP" as far as holding virtual addresses are concerned. But he added, only a fraction of people join them in their virtual addresses in comparison to the BJP.

"Other political parties are copying us. Millions of people join us when we have virtual meetings. But when other political parties make virtual meetings, copying us, they are reduced to thousands," claimed Nadda.

During his address, Nadda highlighted the National Education Policy, social justice and BJP's efforts to 'help' during the lockdown period.

The upcoming Uttarakhand BJP office will have big and small conference halls, mass media interaction facilities and will be digitally compliant in view of emerging trend of virtual interactions, informed Nadda.

    Every party has dynastic politics. There is nothing wrong with passing your merits to the next generation. After all, that is what families are meant for. This constant vilification will do no good, apart from becoming a useless talking point that does not affect my life or yours.

    Much better than protecting and shielding rapists and murderers of women and then garlanding them and promoting with all facilities from tax payers money. There is still brotherhood, sisterhood and family like unity in congress unlike in BJP which has deserted wife, no family and family background unknown.

    Even I dont know people called GANDHI family not willing to leave the politics as they are scolded left, right and center and BJPeee is getting huge benefit out of it. They are literally portraying the GANDI family as villains and never done anything to the country in this case SONIA and entire family to be shifted to ITALY or NITHYANANDA KAILASA COUNTRY and live peacefully.

    This GANDIS are disgraceful for entire country ! There is no hope they are coming and regain the power which is distant black dream of RAHUL . Supporter of CONGRESS worst than the BHAKTHA people as they are indirectly supporting BJPeee to win. If congress is not there people find a alternative solution!!!

    You are forgetting that an economy specialist MMS is also a part of Congress, Gandhi family is only not making the entire party. Sans Gandhis, a party is ruling India since 2014. Please tell me in what way India has prospered ??

    BJP blamed Gandhis to have looted India during Congress rule. Now explain, who looted India in past six years to have slipped below Bangladesh ??

    The congress leaders are in BJP. If it's congress protection means it's from BJP. The people of India consider the service and sacrifice of Nehru and Gandhi family in pre and post independence and defend and love them.BJP right from beginning create hate in the society as they are descendants of Aryan culture

    Double standards of Brother - Sister completely exposed in Rajasthan Priest burning and Ex Soldier hacking in Punjab. No candle light marches or TV vulture politicking by this dubious duo as was exposed in Hathras incident. Lesser said about Mother hen, the better, absolutely no clue what is happening around in own party

    Mr. Nadda, you better concentrate on the affairs of your party only. Congress will take care of theirs. Who should take of of Gandhi family, it’s none of others business. Hope, the better sense will prevail. Barring from blaming Nehru and Gandhi family from the day one, please highlight your performance which is very much in the minds of public, minus Bhakths.

    Mr. Nadda should start fresh vocabulary, this mother-son, mother-son in law was used by your boss in 2014, to be sending them to jail over black money case. He did nothing, proved nothing. In UP, Priyanka's popularity is rising, you better be watchful and worry about it.

    As for copying from BJP, there is nothing but divide and rule to see. Economy nose dived, joblessness, businesses closed down but Adani/Ambanis prolered. Who wants to copy this ??

    Forget about Congress.

    Mr. Nadda you are also the President of the ruling Party on paper. Mr. Shah is still calling the shots...

    First fix it and then talk about others.
