New Delhi: Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley today lashed out at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for his assertion that he was against the concept of dynasty in politics.

Writing in his blog, Jaitley said:  "The most startling statement in the interview: “I am absolutely against the concept of dynasty, anybody who knows me knows that and understands that”- Rahul Gandhi says in the interview. Surely Mr. Gandhi you don't expect India to believe you on that."

On Rahul Gandhi saying there was no comparison between 1984 riots and the 2002 riots in Gujarat, Jaitley wrote:

"In 1984 a slogan “Khoon ka Badla Khoon” started in the afternoon of 31st October 1984 at the AIIMS where Mrs.Gandhi's body lay. Congress Leaders were seen leading the mobs. Sikhs were massacred at thousands of places. No where did the police fire a single bullet to disperse mobs. Cases were not investigated. A Commission of Inquiry was constituted which came with a sham report. The Judge heading the Commission was subsequently made a Congress Party's Member of the Rajya Sabha. Justice evades the victims even now.

"In Gujarat thousands of people were arrested. The badly over-powered police fired at several places. Almost 300 rioters were killed in police firing. Thousands of prosecutions were filed. Hundreds of people have been sentenced. The Chief Minister of the State Government personally went through several inquiries including the Supreme Court constituted SIT and no evidence was found against him. Where did Rahul Gandhi get this idea that in 1984 there was no participation of the State?"
