India Today - - UPFRONT -

Else­where in the coun­try, the Congress may be a study in gloom. But in Ra­jasthan, state party pres­i­dent Sachin Pi­lot is bring­ing the party within fight­ing dis­tance of the rul­ing BJP. Pi­lot man­aged to get Congress vice pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi to tour flood-hit ar­eas of the state, wrote to the prime min­is­ter to re­lease aid, high­lighted farm­ers’ sui­cides and man­aged to get some MLAs who had pledged sup­port to BJP pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Ram Nath Kovind to vote for Congress can­di­date Meira Ku­mar. Rahul seems to think the young PCC chief is do­ing a good job. Per­haps why Pi­lot’s chief ri­val, Ashok Gehlot, has been asked to fo­cus on Gu­jarat.
