BJP president Nitin Gadkari questions Rahul's credentials

By Syed Akbar
Hyderabad, June 7: BJP president Nitin Gadkari on Monday said the only political qualification AICC general secretary Rahul Gandhi possessed was the "Gandhi" tag.
Taking a sharp dig at the "dynasty politics" of the Congress, Nitin Gadkari told this correspondent that the "biggest qualification of Rahul Gandhi is that he is the son of Sonia Gandhi, and Rajiv Gandhi, who is the son of Indira Gandhi, who is the daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru".
When his attention was drawn to a section of the Congress leadership projecting Rahul Gandhi as the party's prime ministerial candidate, the BJP chief said the top posts are reserved for the Gandhi family.
"Even senior Congress leaders like Pranab Mukharjee and P Chidambaram cannot even dream of occupying the Congress president's post or that of the prime minister," he said adding that only
hard work would matter in the BJP.
"I came up the political ladder in the BJP as its president, from being an ordinary party worker. I used to affix party posters on walls," said Gadkari, who is being projected as the young face of the BJP.
