Party a 'special purpose vehicle' which was used by the people only to gain independence from the Britishers.

Addressing a gathering in Mumbai, Shah said, "Those who wanted independence gathered under the Party... It

was like a special purpose vehicle, which was used by many to gain independence. Once it role was fulfilled, the party

became irrelevant. They were hardly any principles, hence Congress' existence, post independence, is solely based for

politics."

country, unlike the Party, where only the 'royalty' are acceded within the party.

"When steps down from her post, everyone knows who will become the next president (Rahul Gandhi). Now

tell me who will become the next president after me, no one can answer that. This proves that the has a striving

internal democracy," Shah said.

belong from a royal family," he added.

agriculture.
