Aiyar kicks up row with remarks on Rahul’s elevation

Tuesday, December 05, 2017

New Delhi: Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar today kicked up a row with comments on succession under the Mughals while talking about the imminent elevation of Rahul Gandhi, a remark Prime Minister Narendra Modi lapped up to attack the party over dynastic politics, likening it to "Aurangzeb raaj".

Responding to Shehzad Poonawala's "dynastic politics" remark on the organisational poll which, he claimed, was "rigged", Aiyar said the Congress leader from Maharashtra was free to contest against Gandhi, while there was no election during the Mughal rule when sons succeeded the emperors. "When Shah Jahan came in the place of Jahangir, was there an election? When Aurangzeb came in place of Shah Jahan, was there an election? No. It was known to everyone earlier that the throne of the emperor will automatically go to the king's heir.”
