New Delhi, Feb 08: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday launching a veiled attack on the Congress and said the grand old party Congress cannot see anything beyond dynasty and that is the difficulty with them.

In the scathing attack, the Prime Minister said that a few leaders of some political parties have shown immaturity in the last 2 years which has disappointed the nation.

Dynasty politics is biggest threat to India: PM

”Those who talk about democracy needs to undertsand, “the biggest threat to India is from the dynastic politics,” the prime minister said in Rajya Sabha.

PM Modi further said that it was said in Parliament “Congress na hoti, toh kya hota?”. “It’s a result of the thinking, India is Indira, Indira is India,” the prime minister said.

Had Congress ceased to be, as per the wish of Mahatma Gandhi, democracy would’ve been free from dynasty. India would’ve walked on the path of national resolutions, instead of taking to foreign view. Had Congress not been there, then there would have been no blot of Emergency, PM Modi says.

Had Congress not been there, there would’ve been no massacre of Sikhs; Punjab wouldn’t have burnt in flames of terrorism for years, Kashmiri Pandits need not have left Kashmir. Had Congress not been there, there would’ve been no incident of daughters being thrown in ‘tandoor’, PM Modi says.

Over Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Union of states’ remark, PM suggests changing name of INC to Federation of Congress.

“When Congress was in power, they didn’t allow country’s development. Now when in Oppn, they are obstructing the development of the country. They are now objecting to ‘Nation’. If the idea of ‘Nation’ is unconstitutional, then why is your party called Indian National Congress?” he said.
