Hitting back at Narendra Modi for his attack on Congress and Rahul Gandhi for "dynastic politics", Congress today asked BJP to explain how it views the politics of NDA allies Shiv Sena and Akali Dal where Uddhav Thackeray and Sukhbir Singh Badal are calling the shots.
Thackeray and Badal are sons of their respective party chiefs late Bal Thackeray and Parkash Singh Badal.
"Those who are giving the slogan of dynasty, ask them what will they say about Shiv Sena and Akali Dal. Will they show mirror to Sukhbir Singh Badal and Uddhav Thackeray?
"Will they also show mirror to their party leaders in Himachal Pradesh and Rajasthan"? party spokesperson Raj Babbar told reporters.
Former BJP Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal's son Anurag Thakur is an MP from Hamirpur and President of Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha while former Rajashtan Chief Minister Vasundhra Raje's son Dushyant Singh is also an MP from Jhalawar.
Party general secretary Digvijay Singh also asked why BJP wants to take the support of those parties in which dynasty rules.
He said if there is any party in India, which supported feudal thoughts, it was BJP, its previous avatar Jan Sangh and RSS.
"It was Jan Sangh and RSS which had opposed the abolition of privy purse and Zamindari Act. This feudal word is not in the dictionary of Congress. This is only in BJP," Singh said.
BJP had recently attacked Congress of doing "feudal" politics.
