New in the Congress

changes highlight shift in thought

gfiles-mary2015-1THOUGH the Congress has been marginalised in the political system of the country, a fierce war among the top political leadership continues. The top leadership is aware that it will take time for Rahul Gandhi to make an impact, and till then it is important to retain key positions in the party hierarchy. This became evident at the Kisan Rally organised in April by the Congress at Ramlila Maidan. The permanent stage manager, Janardan Dwivedi, was conspicuously absent from the podium.

Digvijay Singh emerged as the leader of the show. Ashok Tanwar of the Youth Congress, Ajay Maken, Pratap Singh Bajwa of Punjab, Jairam Ramesh and Gulam Nabi Azad are some of the prominent faces that have emerged as the new team of Rahul. Capt. Amarinder Singh did not speak at the rally. Despite Bhupinder Singh Hooda’s efforts to bring whatever crowd he could muster, he was not given much prominence.

Manmohan Singh and AK Anthony know much about the party and as well as 10, Janpath, so they were given due respect. The veterans within the party are noticing a perceptible change and sensing an intense wrestle even in these days of oblivion.
