Is he a friend or enemy?Today Rahul Gandhi has been formally elected as Congress President. Although there had been some controversies before his formal election, ultimately he has been elected unopposed. After the election, when some reporters asked senior Congress leader about the selection of Congress leader and dynasty politics, he replied: " When Shah Jahan came in the place of Jahangir did any election happen? And when Aurangzeb came in place of Shah Jahan did any election happen? It was known to everyone that the throne of the king will automatically go the heir".
BJP didn't waste any time to latch on this comment. Prime Minister Narendra Modi called the tenure of Rahul Gandhi as Congress President as "Aurangzeb Raj''.
