BJP president Amit Shah on Monday said that Chanakya's views on politics and how a kingdom should be administered and ruled still hold true in contemporary times. Taking a jibe at Conrgess without actually naming the party, he also said the ancient philosopher was against the concept of dynastic politics. It may well have been a statement directed towards Congress - a party that BJP has consistently accused of being based on dynastic lines. Several BJP leaders have time and again also said that Rahul Gandhi's ascent as party president is only because of his family and not based on his credentials or political acumen.
