Who will be UP’s captain?

October 19 2010

There is a tussle for UP’s new president of the Congress Committee. Rahul Gandhi wants the president to either be a dalit of a Brahmin. The Lucknow convention brought out in the open differences between Pramod Tiwari and Rita Bahuguna Joshi. It looks like Rahul is still now sure of where Tiwari’s loyalties lie. A few days ago, when a delegation of PCC members supporting Tiwari came to meet Rahul in Delhi, he refused to give them a hearing. Rahul is, for the time being, toying with three names – Rita Bahuguna Joshi, Jitin Prasad and P L Punia. Rita may be loud, but Rahul feels she is aggressive and a fighter. Everyone knows how Mayavati can’t stand dalit leader Punia, who is also financially sound. Now that Tiwari knows he might not get the seat, he is trying to lobby for Lalit Khatri, a supporter of his from Faizabad. But what’s the use. Man proposes, Rahul disposes.
