Con­TesT­ing Times

The Sunday Guardian - - Nation -

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.
