THE FAVOURED ONE
Barmer MP Harish Chaudhary, 42, is Rahul Gandhi’s new favourite. A former national- level baseball player, Chaudhary caught Rahul’s eye when he was camping in Lucknow as Congress General Secretary Digvijaya Singh’s aide. The postgraduate in economics from Jai Narain Vyas University, Jodhpur, quickly became part of Rahul’s entourage, helping him plan his visits to other states. Never mind that he lost the state that matters most— Uttar Pradesh.
