While speaking at a rally in Valsad district’s Dharampur, Modi said senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar cited the example of Jahangir, Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb to convey the power shift in Congress. “Mani Shankar Aiyar, who never shies away from showing loyalty to one family, proudly said, Jahangir ki jagah jab Shah Jahan aaye, kya tab koi chunav hua tha? Jab Shah Jahan ki jagah Aurangzeb aaye, tab koi election hua tha? Yeh toh pehlay se hi pata tha ki jo badshah hai, uski aulad ko hi satta milegi (When Shahjahan came after Jahangir or Aurangzeb came after Shah Jahan, were there any elections for that? This is already known that the one who is a ruler, his son would get the throne)” Modi said. “I congratulate the Congress on their ‘Aurangzeb Raj.’ For us, the well-being of the people matters and 125 crore Indians are our high command,” he added. The Prime Minister also said that the Congress leaders admit that it is not a party but a "kunba" (family). Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said Modi was "suffering from Rahul Gandhi phobia". Surjewala also said that Modi's "love for Shehzad, Shahzada (BJP chief Amit Shah's son Jai Shah) and Shourya (National Security Advisor Ajit Doval's son)" is well known to the world.

The other TJAC leaders, speaking at the protest, permission for which was obtained after the intervention of the High Court, said it appeared as though the new Telanagana state was meant for the family of KCR and not for the people. Thousands of the youth and students attended the programme at Saroornagar grounds here despite police arresting several of them. Prof M Kodandaram, tearing into KCR’ administration, asked why the Chief Minister had let down the students who overwhelmingly supported him in the election and was showing more interest in beneﬁting contractors. The public meeting began in the backdrop of the suicide by two students on Sunday one in Osmania University and the other in Nirmal district, as they were frustrated because they could not get any job. The speakers repeatedly called on the unemployed youth not to take extreme decisions of ending life but joining hands in the effort to force the government to issue notiﬁcation for ﬁlling vacancies.
