The Power of Partnerships
Rahul likes to go it alone. He showed that in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar in 2009 when he fended off pressure to partner with BSP and RJD. On September 25, he said in Pune that he wanted to win enough seats to not need NCP. But allies are a reality in this era of coalition politics.
CHALLENGE Can Rahul persuade miffed partners such as Sharad Pawar, and win over new allies such as Nitish Kumar?
