‘Politics of convenience’: Kapil Sibal hits back at PM Modi over his dynasty remarks in Telangana

Kapil Sibal, a senior leader of India’s opposition party Congress, has hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his remarks on dynastic politics in Telangana. In a recent speech, Modi had accused the Congress of promoting dynastic politics and ignoring the interests of the people.

Sibal, who is a prominent lawyer and former Union Minister, called Modi’s remarks “politics of convenience” and accused him of using the issue of dynasty to deflect attention from his government’s failures. He argued that the BJP, Modi’s party, was also guilty of promoting dynastic politics, and cited examples of BJP leaders’ family members being given key positions in the party and government.

Sibal further stated that dynasty was not a unique problem of the Congress and that many other parties, including the BJP, had similar issues. He emphasized that the focus should be on good governance and policies that benefit the people, rather than on attacking each other over dynasty.

The issue of dynasty has been a long-standing criticism of the Congress party, which has been accused of promoting family members of its leaders to key positions in the party and government. However, the party has also produced many leaders who have risen through the ranks on their own merit, including former Prime Ministers like Dr. Manmohan Singh and P.V. Narasimha Rao.

On the other hand, the BJP has also faced criticism for promoting family members of its leaders, with the most notable example being the rise of Amit Shah, a close associate of Modi, and his son Jay Shah, who was recently appointed as the secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The issue of dynasty is a contentious one in Indian politics, with many arguing that it undermines democracy and perpetuates inequality. However, others have pointed out that it is not unique to India and that many other countries, including the United States, also have dynastic politics.

In conclusion, Kapil Sibal’s response to Modi’s remarks on dynasty highlights the complex nature of Indian politics and the challenges facing the country’s democracy. While the issue of dynasty is a legitimate concern, it should not be used as a political tool to deflect attention from more pressing issues of governance and policy. Ultimately, the success of Indian democracy will depend on the ability of its leaders and citizens to address these challenges and work towards a more inclusive and equitable society.
