PM Modi dares Congress to make an ‘outsider’ party president
Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday dared the Congress to make someone outside the Gandhi family the party president for at least five years. Modi said if Congress makes someone who is not from the (Gandhi) family as party president for at least five years, then he will believe that Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru really created a truly democratic system there. Addressing a campaign rally for the second phase of Chhattisgarh Assembly elections scheduled on November 20, Modi said, “I want to challenge them. Let some good leader of Congress outside of the family become the party president for five years, then I will say that Nehru ji really created a truly democratic system there”.
