New Delhi, April 3 (TIWN) Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday claimed that the ruling BJP has made a "wholesale capture" of the entire "institutional framework" of the country, and this was preventing a "fair political fight".

"There is a wholesale capture of the institutional framework of this country and absolute financial and media dominance."     "To fight elections fairly, there is need of institutional structures, a judicial system that protects, a media that is reasonably free, also financial parity, and there is need of a whole set of structures that actually allow to operate a political party. 

"We are in a paradigm where the institutions that are supposed to protect us, do not protect us anymore. And the institutions that are supposed to support a fair political fight, don't do so anymore," he said in an online interaction with Nicholas Burns, the Professor of the Practice of Diplomacy and International Politics at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government, and a former US Under Secretary of State.
