Pun intended: Rishi Kapoor's tweets on Rahul Gandhi's 'dynasty politics' comment
Rishi Kapoor is back with a vengeance. And this time he has given his take on the latest news feed relating to 'dynasty politics' remark. In continuation, Rishi Kapoor advised Rahul Gandhi to earn people's respect through merit.

Rahul Gandhi retorting to Minister Smriti Irani's remark that Congress was conjoined with dynasty politics, while addressing American students at the University of California, Berkeley, on Tuesday said, "Most of the country runs like this. So, don't go after me. Akhilesh Yadav is a dynasty, Mr Stalin (DMK supremo M Karunanidhi's son) is a dynasty, and Mr (Prem Kumar) Dhumal's son (Anurag Thakur of the BJP) is a dynasty. Even Mr. Abhishek Bachchan is a dynasty, also Mr Ambani."

The 47-year-old Congress leader further went on to say, "That's what happens in India and just the way India runs. The real question is if that person is a capable, sensitive person."

The actor expressed his resentment at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi. Rahul Gandhi had mentioned the presence of dynasty in Bollywood in his speech at Berkeley.

In a series of tweets the actor cited examples of Kapoors, their family, as dynastic clan and how they have managed to keep the respect generation after generation.

Responding to Congress Vice President's statement, this is what Rishi Kapoor tweeted:

A question-answer session was followed by Rahul Gandhi's speech on 'India at 70: Reflections on the Path Forward'. Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) reacted immediately after the speech and called Gandhi a "failed dynast".

"A failed dynast today chose to speak about his failed political journey in the US... the country (India) is not listening so he is speaking somewhere else," Smriti Irani said at a press conference in New Delhi.
