JAIRAM RAMESH,

India Today - - UPFRONT -

Ra­jya Sabha MP from Kar­nataka and se­nior Congress leader, has di­ag­nosed his party’s prob­lems as an in­abil­ity to re­de­fine it­self in the face of the chal­lenge to its ex­is­tence posed by Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi and BJP pres­i­dent Amit Shah. “They think dif­fer­ently, they act dif­fer­ently,” Ramesh said and de­manded more flex­i­bil­ity from the Congress. But is that pos­si­ble if the party won’t look be­yond one fam­ily for its lead­ers? That is a ques­tion Ramesh, like the Congress gen­er­ally, chooses not to ad­dress.
