    Rahul Gandhi: A leader destined to rise or bite the dust

    In India, we have grown up with two major political parties, one past its glory days and one at the zenith in the Indian political scene. Interestingly the leader of the party past its glory, the Congress is a young leader bearing the mantle held by great leaders in the past.

    Is this a blessing in disguise? BJP has a mature leadership, the Gujarat polls have shown chinks in the BJP armor, it is yet to break into South India and slowly running out of ideas. The Leader of the party at its zenith (BJP) has perhaps shown his Achilles Heel, his serious remarks on supari and conspiracy with Pakistan and his narrowing margin in Gujarat wins. If we have to believe in the law of averages, somebody is likely to catch-up. Can that somebody be Rahul Gandhi

    From the Congress perspective, it's a matter of reviving and re-shaping the party. With Rahul, visiting temples (temple agenda of BJP), forming alliances with Hardik Patel and quickly sacking MS Iyer has shown some political shrewdness. He needs a good think tank team, fresh ideas, connect with grass root party workers and the public, become a good leader in opposition and form a formidable alliance that can stand up to the mighty BJP if he does that, who knows he can bring back the glory of Congress.

    Let's see what's in store for Rahul & the Congress.

    Rahul Gandhi is at the helm of the affairs of Congress. It is easy to maintain a party which is in a good position. But to bring a party which is derailed bringing back on to the rails is a very hectic task. There many problems before him. He has to win the confidence of the people. He has to make inroads into the voters who are loyal to other Party. In south expect in Karnataka nowhere congress is in good shape. He is to develop new look good leaders at the state level who will be able to inspire the local people and make them shift their loyalties from the local parties to their party.
    He should have good aids who can provide him good and positive help to bring the gone prestige back to the party.
    He has to do a lot of thinking for this and he should use right person for the right job. Then only he will be successful. He requires a very good adviser with him for all this. Let us hope the young leader will do a lot of good work and bring back the lost glory.

    always confident

    I don't have much faith on this perpetual youth leader; most probably most of the Congress supporters have the same opinion. Congress would fare much better under the leadership of Jotiraditya Sindhia or Sachin Pilot, but that would always remain a dream.
    Beware! I question everything and everybody.

    Time alone can tell. The Congress party went into oblivion previously and revived gloriously. Hope the Congress party will recover the glory under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi who made a good beginning with Gujarat elections.

    Was it a beginning? Some people are counting. They say that Gujarat defeat has been the 29th defeat of Congress under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi. Who knows how should we define ''good beginning"?

    After being selected as the President of the Indian National Congress, there is a changed improvement in his behaviour and also improved performance in his party performance. Getting 80 seats in Gujarat elections was solely possible because of his hard work. Had his President position might have happened before the first phase of polling, there could have been further rise or even snatching power from the BJP. Please note the party has fared very good and for the BJP it is the worrying matter as Rahul can inflict much harm to the BJP in future if does not mend the ways. Two days back he thanked the party workers of getting good number of seats to the party in Gujarat. And now he is also concentrating on South and there is a compulsion for the party to retain the Karnataka and for that he has to pitch the election campaign more vigorously. Slowly Rahul Gandhi is transforming into a politician to reckon with.

    Failures are stepping stones to victory. Hope Rahul Gandhi proves this. There will be always people with different views on political future of individuals.
