If Rahul Gandhi accepts dynastic rule, how can Congress and he claim to be democratic?The doubt on people's mind is now cleared. The once largest party in India is not at all democratic. In fact for the last many decades it was proving to be so. No one knows when the last election was conducted within that party. All posts came to be nominated. Leaders were not growing from grassroots wok, but were imposed and implanted from top- the High Command. Once there was a feeling that the then PM late Indira Gandhi, of Congress was turning autocratic. However democratic minded Indian 'janata' put a stop to that by defeating her in elections.( Ironically it was Indira who abolished privy purse given to erstwhile Royals.)
Now, to culminate all these, Rahul Gandhi, the party's VP and probably talked about as the party's PM candidate in next elections has stated that in India all parties follow dynastic rule. At least all those he quoted are or were allies of Congress once or other time.
Can people be blamed if they regret how they miss the earlier Royal rule seeing how the 'modern dynasty rule' functions?
