Bric a Brac : Desperate times

congressmen search for a leader

congressmen-search-for-a-leaderTHE Congress Party has reached such a state of affairs because the top leaders (read Gandhi family) do not want to learn anything from past mistakes. For them, it’s business as usual. The crisis is deeper. Most of the senior leaders of the Congress Party appear to be in a depressed mood. It’s not that they are not competent or they cannot motivate the workers on national level. Their real worry is being leaderless and direction-less. But business within and outside the party is not leaderless. It has a leader, Rahul Gandhi.

However, most of the Congress leaders are not able to understand Rahul’s politics and missions. In the face of a crisis, senior leaders are also trying to determine who is the boss of the party. No doubt, Rahul Gandhi has emerged as the face but his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and her husband Robert Vadra command considerable clout in the management of the party and the Congress-ruled states. As disclosed by party leaders, nothing has changed. A new coterie is managing the show even though the working style to manage the party and states is same. The Congress ruled Chief Ministers are the wisest lot and have found a way to manage the leaders who manage the family. As one senior leader pointed out, Robert Vadra is still the boss. Vadra is still in demand by the ruling clique within the party and Priyanka Vadra and Roberts’ words are final as far as the management of the states are concerned. Sonia Gandhi is aware of the complex situation within the family but she is in a fix. gfiles end logo
