Dharampur, Dec 4 Taking a dig at Rahul Gandhi after he filed his nomination papers for the party chief' post, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that Congress had gone bankrupt.
"I congratulate the Congress on their 'Aurangzeb raj.' For us, the well-being of the people matters and 125 crore Indians are our high command," he said.
The PM added, "Congress party leaders themselves agree that Congress isn't a party but a clan."
"Mani Shankar Aiyar (Congress leader), who never shies away from showing loyalty to one family, proudly said - 'When Shah Jahan came in the place of Jahangir did any elections happen? And when Aurangzeb came in place of Shah Jahan did any election happen? It was known to everyone that the throne of the king will automatically go the son'. - So Congress accepts its a family party? We don't want this Aurangzeb rule," PM Modi maintained.
PM Modi further said, "Congress has gone bankrupt as it is going to make a person who is out on bail in corruption case its president."
Rahul on Monday filed his nomination papers for the party's chief post.
The 47-year-old Gandhi scion is likely to emerge as the lone candidate in the fray and decks have been cleared for his election as the Congress president, succeeding his mother Sonia Gandhi, who has held the post for 19 years in a row now.
Sonia and former PM Manmohan Singh are among the proposers for the candidature of Rahul for the party chief's post.
The last date for withdrawal of candidature is December 11 and the poll, if necessary, will be held on December 16 and the counting will take place on December 19.
