Heart-to-heart

meeting up with rahul

by-the-way-heart-to-heart-may2016THE Congress Party is worried that the media has been hypnotised by the BJP. The party has a big media set-up, but it lacks leaders who can talk, motivate and present issues before the media. Rahul remains their only hope. Rahul’s secretariat is in action; he has been meeting journalists across India for the last three months. Randip Singh Surjewala and Ajay Maken selectively choose the journalists. The selection is based on the feedback of State leaders, or monitoring of byline stories. One can say that the first round of discussion has been planned with journalists who are generally Congress sympathisers or loyalists. Each journalist is briefed that the discussion with Rahul is strictly off the record. Rahul opens his heart before the journalist in the one-and-a-half hour meeting. He informs journalists where and with whom he goes to see movies. Issues about the entry of Priyanka Gandhi into politics are also discussed. Rahul meets every journalist, shakes hands and if he finds someone impressive, notes down his number also. In one such session, Rahul disclosed that most of the people welfare schemes were drawn with the help of industrialists, saying that rich and poor both have to grow. He disclosed that now industrialists have come and revealed that they were promised the moon during the 2014 elections by Modi, but the action is far from reality. Most journalists are happy when they come out for one reason alone: the inaccessible Rahul met them. Nobody is clear about the results of such interactions as Rahul does not discuss any roadmap for the development of India. Unless there is an agenda, no amount of interaction will help the Congress. Is Rahul listening?
