'Govt family': Rahul Gandhi's jab at PM Modi over 'nepotism'

NEW DELHI: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday accused the BJP of hypocrisy over 'parivarvad (dynastic politics)'. Rahul alleged that while the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government has on numerous occasions dismissed the sacrifices of Congress leaders as 'nepotism', the portfolio allocation on Monday saw the distribution of power to a 'government family'.

"Those who call the tradition of struggle, service and sacrifice of generations as nepotism are distributing the will of power to their 'government family'," the Congress MP said in a post on X (formerly Twitter).

"This difference between the words and actions is called Narendra Modi," he added.

Along with the post, Rahul shared a list of 20 Cabinet ministers whose relatives previously held positions in central or state governments.

Here is the list shared by Rahul Gandhi:

  1. HD Kumaraswamy, son of HD Deve Gowda, former Prime Minister
  2. Javant Chaudhary, grandson of Chaudhary Charan Singh, former Prime Minister
  3. Ram Nath Thakur, son of Karpoori Thakur, former chief minister, Bihar
  4. Rao Inderjit Singh, son of Rao Birendra Singh, former chief minister, Haryana
  5. Ravneet Singh Bittu, grandson of Beant Singh, former chief minister, Punjab
  6. Jvotiraditva Scindia, son of Madhav Rao Scindia Former Union Minister
  7. Chirag paswan, son of Ram Vilas Paswan, former Union minister
  8. Ram Mohan Naidu, son of Yerren Naidu, former Union minister
  9. Piyush Goyal, son of Ved Prakash Goyal, former Union minister
  10. Kiren Rijiju, son of Rinchin Kharu, First Pro-Term Speaker, Arunachal
  11. JP Nadda, son-in-law, Jayshree Banerjee, Former MP & minister, Madhya Pradesh
  12. Jitin prasada, son of Jitendra Prasada, Former MP, Uttar Pradesh
  13. Kirti Vardhan Singh, son of Maharaj Anand Singh, former minister, Uttar Pradesh
  14. Dharmendra Pradhan, Son of Debendra Pradhan, former Union minister
  15. Anupriya Patel, daughter of Sonelal Patel, founder - Bahujan Samaj Party & Apna Dal
  16. Raksha Khadse, daughter-in-law of Eknath Khadse, MLA Maharashtra and former minister
  17. Kamlesh paswan, son of Om Prakash Paswan, Lok Sabha candidate, Uttar Pradesh
  18. Shantanu Thakur, son of Manjul Krishna Thakur, former minister, West Bengal
  19. Virendra Kumar Khatik, brother-in-law of Gaurishankar Shejwar, former minister, Madhya Pradesh
  20. Annapurna Devi, wife of Ramesh Prasad Yadav, former MLA, Bihar

During campaigning for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other top BJP leaders repeatedly attacked the Congress and several regional parties of 'dynastic politics'.

In several rallies, specially in Uttar Pradesh, PM Modi repeatedly referred to Rahul Gandhi, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav as 'shehzadas'.
