Three Congressmen are the envy of their colleagues— Kanishka Singh, Bhanwar Jitendra Singh and Digvijaya Singh. Kanishka is Rahul Gandhi’s gatekeeper- cum- political strategist; Jitendra is both a friend and a loyal aide; while Digvijaya is his mentor- in- chief. All three are Thakurs. As a Congress MP pointed out, “Hasn’t Rahul learnt from his father? Three Thakurs let Rajiv down— V. P. Singh, Chandra Shekhar and Arun Singh.” But then, Rahul does not have a
particularly firm grasp of history.
