Yogi Adityanath mocked Rahul Gandhi, saying, his promotion will only make BJP's work easier
UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today mocked Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, saying the Congress' plan to elevate him as party president would only make the BJP's task for a "Congress-mukt" or "Congress-free" India "easier".
The chief minister's remarks come a day after the Congress Working Committee cleared the decks for Rahul Gandhi's elevation as party president.
"By becoming Congress president, Rahul Gandhi will make our task to make India 'Congress-mukt' easier," Mr Adityanath said.
The chief minister said, "Congress represents a dynastic party where after Soniaji, Rahulji must follow."
"Ek toh Congress vanshwadi party ka pratinidhitva karta hai. Soniaji ke baad Rahulji ko hi aana hai, ismey dhol peetney ki avyashakata nahi hai (Congress represents dynastic rule. It is no surprise that after Sonia Gandhi, the party will have to be led by Rahul Gandhi. What is the need to make such a hue and cry about it?" he asked while talking to reporters in Gorakhpur.
"By becoming Congress president, Rahul Gandhi will make our task easier to make India 'Congress-mukt'."
"The slogan -- 'Congress-mukt Bharat' (or 'Congress-free India') -- given by Modiji during the 2014 polls will be very easy after Rahul Gandhi takes charge as Congress President," Mr Adityanath said.
