Constitution Day: PM Modi’s comments come as the opposition presents a united front against the government.
New Delhi: India is headed towards a crisis, which is “a matter of huge concern” for those having faith in the spirit of democracy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said this morning in an all-out attack on the Congress. The Prime Minister lashed out at the “dynastic parties” at the Constitution Day event, which 14 opposition parties skipped a day after Congress MP Mallikarjun Kharge held a strategy meet in a prelude to the next week’s winter session.
“Party for the family, by the family… do I need to say more? If a party is run by one family for many generations, then, it isn’t good for a healthy democracy… look at the political parties from Kashmir to Kanyakumari,” the Prime Minister said in his address.
“Dynastic parties are a matter of great concern for those who want to protect the Constitution. India is headed towards a crisis.”
PM Modi’s comments come as the opposition presents a united front against the government.
“By dynastic politics, I don’t mean that more than one member of a family can’t enter politics. No… on the basis of potential, with people’s blessings, people can join politics. But if a political party – generation after generation – is run by one family, it becomes a threat for democracy,” the Prime Minister said in a sharp attack at the Gandhis.
