Opposition party cannot nurture the country’s democracy: Amit Shah

Vastavam web: Launching a blistering attack on the Congress over its dynastic politics, BJP president Amit Shah Sunday said the opposition party cannot nurture the country’s democracy and fulfil its objectives. Naming Congress leaders from the Nehru-Gandhi family, Shah said the oldest party of the country does not have “internal” democracy.

“Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Sanjay Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi — I am not mentioning the future name. No question of involving workers at all. Such parties cannot nurture the country’s democracy and fulfil its objectives,” the BJP leader said at a party meet here. Taking a dig at the Congress, he said that the party, which does not have “internal democracy”, cannot strengthen the country’s democracy.
