Kanishka vs Milind?

congress search for new treasurer

Kanishka-vs-MilindTHE Congress Party is in search of a new Treasure for its cash-starved coffers albeit the tremendous trust in 89-year-old former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Motilal Vora’s capabilities. The party is not able to find a successor to Vora. Vora is the one politician of the party who is available till late night most of the time to both the party leadership and workers in the All India Congress Committee office in New Delhi. The Congress Party run by the trio of Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi and Robert Vadra has to choose a loyal worker who may be groomed in a decade for greater responsibility. If one takes note of indications from Vora’s office, then Kanishka Singh, the son of a former Foreign Secretary SK Singh, is the front runner. Kanishka Singh has studied from St. Stephen’s College, Delhi University and then went to the USA to do M.S and MBA from Wharton. Some feel that since the companies over which Kanishka Singh had a good hold are facing investigations, he could land up in trouble. Another contender is Milind Deora. His father Murli Deora used to channelise funds for the party. After his death, Milind has been managing funds for the party in Mumbai. He is very close to Rahul and usually travels abroad with the Congress president. During his US tour too, he had accompanied Rahul. Businessmen and members of the US Congress reportedly told Rahul that Murli Deora was called the Senator of Manhattan! So, Milind is also a strong competitor for the treasurer post due to the legacy of his father, understanding of the business world, and proximity to Rahul. Still, If Priyanka Gandhi’s writ runs, in all probability Kanishka Singh may be the new treasurer of the Congress Party. gfiles end logo
