Patna: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav has asserted that Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS), the ideological mentor of BJP, was ahead of others in encouraging nepotism as BJP considered any person able, hardworking, patriot and experienced if he became a member of 'Sangh Parivar'.
Yadav, youngest son of RJD chief Lalu Prasad, in his Facebook account under his 'Dil Ki Baat' series said last night, "Sangh Parivar, which takes lead in accusing other political parties of encouraging nepotism is itself ahead of them and its protg BJP itself has poor record on it ".
He said, BJP wanted to create controversy on any issue in nervousness of strong mass support of other parties and also to distract people`s attention from basic issues.
He said, BJP had no problem in entering into political alliance with parties like Shiv Sena, Lok Janshakti Party, Shiromani Akali Dali, Peoples Democratic Party and others which were family based parties and also not disturbed with growing family-centred ambitions of its own leaders.
Yadav accused BJP of adopting double standard on the issue of nepotism as families of several senior party leaders including Kalyan Singh, Rajnath Singh, Prem Kumar Dhumal, Pramod Mahajan, Gopinath Munde and several others scaled heights in the party, which encouraged nepotism to the hilt.
