Yuvraj just won’t change

August 22 2016

Rahul Gandhi’s distance with old Congress leaders has started to increase yet again. During the 15th Lok Sabha, Rahul would be surrounded by his young brigade in the Parliament. This brigade included Bhanwar Jitendra Singh Sachin Pilot, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Jitin Prasad, Dipindra Hudda, Milind Deora, and so on. Most of them have not been able to get into the 16th Lok Sabha. Those who have, such as the likes of Jyotiraditya Scindia, Gaurav Gogoi, Deependra Hudda, are always seen around Rahul. Scindia’s seat is assigned in the third row, but he is also seen sitting next to Rahul until the Parliament is on. The Parliamentarian who has got the seat next to Rahul has hardly got a chance to sit there. Some old hands in the Congress let it slip that it is these friends that have misguided Rahul; Rahul’s mandali not only has a critical opinion of the old hands in the Congress, it also doesn’t shy away from imitating these people and having a good laugh at their expense. Rahul mandali is seen in the Parliament with him, and vanishes the moment he leaves. In the last Parliamentary session, when Sonia Gandhi arrived post-lunch at 3 pm, the entire Opposition bench was vacant. Only a handful of old members such as Mallikarjun Khadge were in the Parliament. Sonia didn’t like what she saw, and it is said she mentioned it to Rahul as well. But the crown prince just won’t mend his ways.
