Rahul Gandhi is set to finally take over as party president by end October. According to Congress sources, the notification for an “election” should be out soon, in case anyone else wants to contest for the post. In fact, some say that privately, the leadership is divided as to whether they would like a contest or not. On the one hand, an “appearance” of a contest would give them a plank to claim “internal democracy”. But the catch is that one can never be sure of the mood within the party, for Rahul Gandhi doesn’t command the same amount of warmth as his mother. So perhaps it’s best not to stir still waters.
