Speak­ing at the same book launch, BJP gen­eral sec­re­tary Ram Mad­hav made it clear that in his party at least there would not be any va­can­cies for the next 15 years. Clearly, both Naren­dra Modi and his team feel that they are there for the long term. Won­der if the 2019 elec­tions will prove them right! How­ever, since Mad­hav was shar­ing the stage with Akhilesh Ya­dav, Sachin Pi­lot, Jayant Chaud­hary and Omar Ab­dul­lah, he was gra­cious enough to say that it’s not the sur­name, but merit that’s the cri­te­rion in judg­ing alone. To which the mod­er­a­tor, Vir Sanghvi quipped, “You mean to say that Piyush Goyal is okay, but Rahul Gandhi is not” (while both are dy­nasts, the for­mer is from the BJP, while the lat­ter is from the Con­gress).
