PK gives a new lease of life to Congress

August 07 2016

You can sense the Congress reviving itself in UP. When Sonia did her road show in Modi’s constituency Varanasi, it was several kilometers long. A few days before this, when Rahul headed a meeting of Congress members at the Rama Bai Ambedkar venue, 50,000 people attended it despite the rains. The acumen of Prashant Kishore, the man who organized the event, was worth witnessing. An extended ramp of 65 feet was constructed, on which Rahul walked and met the party members, shook hands with them and conversed. Big screens had been placed at the venue, there were several cameras, as well as two on drones, and along with Rahul, Sheila Dikshit and Raj Babbar too accepted all queries that were thrown at them. Several pointed questions were asked of Rahul specifically, for instance: “You don’t come to UP, meeting you in Delhi is a wild goose chase, and why is Priyanka seen only during the elections? Where is she for the rest of time times? And why does she limit herself to Rae Bareilly and Amethi? The significant part: Rahul gave answers to even the most unpleasant questions with a smile. The media didn’t know what to make of it!
