The Congress’s ef­fort to push party Vice- Pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi into the lime­light seems to be work­ing against him. The party com­mu­ni­ca­tion cell’s poor ad­vice is only adding to his woes. Case in point: A less- than- minute- long state­ment by Rahul on Fe­bru­ary 17 claim­ing credit for UPA im­ple­ment­ing ‘ one rank, one pen­sion’ for ex- ser­vice­men. The me­dia was in­formed barely 20 min­utes be­fore the non­event. While SPG per­son­nel were still frisk­ing jour­nal­ists queued up out­side 10 Jan­path, Rahul ap­peared be­fore the few who had man­aged to reach in­side, leav­ing those still out­side fum­ing.
