Earlier in the day, Gandhi slammed the BJP over dynasty politics and asked "What is exactly the son of Amit Shah doing?" Addressing a Press conference, on being asked a question about the BJP targeting Congress on dynasty politics, Rahul alleged that many of their (BJP) children are dynasties. "What is exactly the son of Amit Shah doing? What does Rajnath Singh's son do? Last I heard, Amit Shah's son is running Indian cricket. Please be objective. Look at the BJP, many of their children like Anurag Thakur, are dynasties," he said.

Earlier after taking part in a "Padyatra" from Chanmari (Aizawl) to Raj Bhawan, Gandhi said that the Bharat Jodo Yatra celebrated the idea of India, where the diverse languages, religions, cultures and traditions of our country are respected and protected.  "The BJP destroyed that idea in Manipur.
