Priyanka’s appointment as the Congress general secretary for Uttar Pradesh – East, which marked her re-entry into politics, has created havoc among Mahagathbandhan leaders who were seeing themselves as the PM candidate from the opposition. The chances of one person particularly, who had high chances of becoming opposition’s PM, has reduced considerably. Yes, we are talking about none other than Congress President Rahul Gandhi.
Till now Rahul Gandhi was seen as the one and only PM candidate from Congress and considering that he is the son of Sonia Gandhi there was no real chance for others. However, Priyanka’s entry into politics has disturbed Rahul’s sleep as the latter yet again woke up at night today morning.
Priyanka’s entry has not only created a rift within the party but has also proved that Indira Gandhi still matters in Indian politics. Priyanka Gandhi’s resemblance to Indira gives her an edge over Rahul and to eliminate this factor, Rahul Gandhi has now got a makeover to look like Indira.
