Gfiles - - Bric-a-brac -

SO­NIA Gandhi is 72 years old and she has been very ac­tive till now. In­sid­ers re­veal that her health con­di­tion is wor­ri­some not only for the party but for Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi also. Lead­ers who are meet­ing So­nia Gandhi on a reg­u­lar ba­sis dis­close that she may not be phys­i­cally able to travel and can­vass in the 2019 par­lia­men­tary elec­tions. On the con­di­tion of anonymity, one se­nior leader told gfiles that So­nia Gandhi may not even con­test the Rae Bareli seat. So, who will con­test this the po­lit­i­cally hot seat. In­sid­ers say the fam­ily may de­cide to put up Priyanka Gandhi from Rae Bareli. Though San­jay Singh, an MP from As­sam and na­tive of Ame­thi, also de­sires to con­test as his term will end in April 2020. An­other dark horse is Robert Vadra, hus­band of Priyanka Gandhi. Vadra is learnt to have po­lit­i­cal am­bi­tions and wants to be­come an MP. All be will be clear in a few months.
