    Can someone file a PIL on blatant disregard of internal democracy in political parties ? This flouts the very notion of India being a democracy if political parties are inherited from one generation to the next. Congress Party started this trend with JL Nehru and Indira Gandhi and now almost all parties are becoming fiefdoms of families. JL Nehru is supposed not to have promoted his daughter Indira but she was made Congress President in 1959 when there were many senior and distinguished men and women in Congress party at the time, mainly because of being JL Nehru's daughter I suspect. Even most of the younger generation of Congress politicians are nothing but children of earlier Congressis.

    If this continues, India will be in the same league N Korea. As it is with the huge corruption of Congress party and allies and crony capitalism of those friendly with ruling clique, India should be called an oligarchy or kleptocracy rather than `world's largest democracy`.

    Rahul to be designated No. 2 in Congress soon

    NEW DELHI: Congress heir apparent Rahul Gandhi will soon be formally designated No.2, with organizational reshuffle to follow Sunday's ministerial rejig to complete the overhaul of the ruling establishment for the 2014 elections.

    Rahul is likely to be elevated as 'secretary general' or 'working president', perhaps as early as this week itself. Although the two pedestals have been ceremonial, they will pack real punch in his hands, and will delineate the hierarchy for future.

    Why am i not surprised at this, eventually he will be branded as the future PM. Another Gandhi family rubber stamp on the nation's future, well what can you expect in this pseudo-democratic nation. :tsk:

    Is this a surprise? It should have happened long ago. But kiddo isn't ready!

    One should thank Raajmata for not making RG sit on Prime Minister's chair prematurely.
