Akhilesh Yadav defends Rahul's remark over dynast politics”

As for Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi mentioning his name at Berkeleys University in the United States while giving an example of dynastic politics in India, Akhilesh said he was a "friend" and had said so with a certain perspective.

He also cited the example of the US, where he said the wife (Hilary Clinton) of a former president ran for the presidency while the son of another former president (George H W Bush) also went on to occupy the top post.

He further asserted that the Samajwadi Party would keep its friendship with the Congress.

This statement of the SP Chief comes after Rahul Gandhi spoke about the dynast politics followed in India. His remarks invited flak from the BJP. Mr. Stalin (son of M Karunanidhi in DMK) is a dynast...even Abhishek Bachchan is a dynast.

"It's not as if the bullet train can end unemployment", Akhilesh said. By the way, last, I recall, Mr. Ambanis are running the business.

"Whatever has been said about dynastic politics, the BJP is extremely anxious".

"When you become prisoners to a dynasty, or a political system becomes crowd around a family, then at least in the 21st century you can't get the best out of that system. So that's what happens in India".

Taking another potshot at the BJP Government, Akhilesh said that the public opinion was proof enough of the party's reputation, and the criticism can be seen across the social media platforms. "No new project has been started in the past six months".

"Our Gomti river front is more lovely than Sabarmati", he said. "Now he should explain how a bullet train project has gone to poll-bound Gujarat", he said.

"They (BJP) used to say that I launch schemes for Saifai. But now they will not be able to say this", he said.

"CM (Adityanath) has approached the PM, the Niti Ayog, the finance minister and the RBI but with no help from anyone has waived loan (up to Rs one lakh) from his own resources.This is insufficient and farmers are disappointed", he claimed.
