April 29 (NL Web Desk): Assam Finance, Health, Education and Tourism Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma once against took pot-shots at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi claiming that dynastic politics will be a thing of the past and that the country will witness the end of dynastic politics by 2019.
Speaking at the India Today Mind Rocks Summit 2017 at the Taj Vivanta in Guwahati today, the Assam Finance, Health, Education and Tourism Minister said the 2014 general elections was a watershed moment in the country’s history and claimed Prime Minister Modi is more responsive to tweets and messages from people while it will take Rahul Gandhi around three years to connect to his followers.
“If a person wants to reach out to the Prime Minister, he or she can do so by sending a few tweets to him. The Prime Minister will respond to the tweets. However, if you want to reach out to Rahul Gandhi, you will have to wait for four to five years,” Sarma said while referring to the prompt medical service received by a baby from Assam after she was flown to New Delhi from Dibrugarh in an air ambulance after Prime Minister Modi responded to tweets and facilitated the creation of a green corridor so that the baby could be taken to hospital from airport in the quickest possible time.
