IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Trust Rahul Gandhi to take in­stant ac­tion. With Congress work­ers in Ame­thi com­plain­ing about in­ac­ces­si­bil­ity and in­ep­ti­tude on his re­cent two- day visit, Rahul ef­fected an im­me­di­ate de­mo­tion. Kishori Lal, his point­man who would drive him around the con­stituency, was rel­e­gated to the back­seat of the Toy­ota For­tuner. In the driver’s seat was the chief ar­chi­tect of Rahul’s Ut­tar Pradesh cam­paign, Kan­ishka Singh. Brother- in- law Robert Vadra would sit be­hind the wheel when­ever Rahul toured, be­fore he dis­cov­ered the joys of rid­ing alone.
