PM Modi says dynastic politics destroyed India's institutions, Priyanka Gandhi hits back

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi, who is on last leg of her three-day long Ganga Yatra today slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for accusing Congress of destroying India's institutions. 

"BJP has systematically attacked every institution, including the one you are a part of, you are aware of it better than I am aware of it. So I think the prime minister should stop thinking that people are fools and understand that they see through all this," she said while talking to media in Mirzapur.

Her statement came in reaction to an article shared by the prime minister a short while ago where he has alleged that 'dynasty'  has destroyed India's institutions. 

"The biggest casualty of dynastic politics are institutions. From the press to Parliament. From soldiers to free speech. From the Constitution to the courts. Nothing is spared," he said in a tweet while sharing his article. 

Congress leader Kapil Sibal and Sheila Dikshit also attacked PM Modi over his dynasty comment. Sibal alleged that BJP suffered from the worst case of 'dynasty-rule' as only one - family - RSS could choose appointees of key designations within BJP ruled states and at the Centre. 

Dikshit said that Gandhi family were elected by people and were not trying to rule by force.
