The Right Man

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

A five-minute meet­ing with Rahul Gandhi five years ago got him an As­sem­bly ticket from Congress. Un­be­liev­able but true. Pan­chayat of­fi­cer, Samu Kashyap, 37, met Rahul Gandhi in Septem­ber 2008, when Rahul was vis­it­ing his vil­lage Jamwada in Ch­hat­tis­garh. The Congress Vice Pres­i­dent asked for the most ed­u­cated per­son in the vil­lage and Kashyap stood up, say­ing he had com­pleted Class XII. Kashyap is now the Congress can­di­date from Jag­dalpur con­stituency. That is quite a mem­ory.
