    Rahul Gandhi to become India's ruling Congress party chief


    NEW DELHI, Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- India's Nehru-Gandhi scion, Rahul Gandhi, will soon become the head of the country's ruling Congress party, taking over the reins from his mother Sonia Gandhi in the next few weeks, local media reported Saturday.

    The coronation of the 41-year-old Rahul is likely in "four to eight weeks" and his mother and current Congress President Sonia would restrict her role to providing broad directions to the country's oldest political party, local dail The Economic Times quoted unnamed senior party leaders as saying.

    Sonia has been at the helm of Congress party since 1998.

    Rahul will be a year older than his father, the late Rajiv Gandhi, who took over as prime minister and party chief in 1984 after the assassination of Indira Gandhi.

    With Rahul taking over the party, recurring rumours of a leadership change in the government will also be put to rest, though Congress leaders told the newspaper that there is no plan to change horses in mid-stride.

    Rahul, a Member of Parliament representing the Amethi constituency in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, is currently General Secretary of the Congress party. He entered politics in 2004.

    An MPhil from Cambridge University, Rahul had earlier worked at the Monitor Group, a management consulting firm, in London before coming back to India in 2002 to become one of the directors of Mumbai-based technology outsourcing firm Backops Services Private Ltd.

    [h=3]Rahul Baba in a new avatar of angry young man [/h]
    Inspired by real action hero and India's first angry young man, Amitabh Bachchan (Amitji), India's Amul Baby and future Prime Minister Rahul Gandhi (Rahul Baba) said "I become angry when I come to UP... haaainnnn (Reason is not that he has to come to UP instead of going to US)."


    "The pathetic conditions in Uttar Pradesh always make me angry," he told a gathering in Bhadohi, the home of UP's carpet industry, where he drove around as part of his two-day unscheduled (as usual) tour.
    One UP Congress worker with requesting anonymity said "I don't understand why does Rahul Baba's visits are planned unscheduled. This creates real problem of arranging basic and necessity nasty Italian food like Pizza and Burgers.


    Finally he has to go to some villager's house have to eat inexpensive food. Recently, the Party has spent huge amount to doctors to remove his digestion problem. Even, we had to arrange that forgetful and notorious padyatra for him."


    One of the closed associates to Rahul Baba said "Diggy Chacha planned a total makeover for Rahul Baba. He was very angry over comments from people that Rahul Baba looks dumb and not intelligent. Therefore, he said Rahul Baba to watch Amitabh's movies a lot of times adopt his cool and witty looks, a sarcastic smile and a lot of anger and passion in the eyes along with reading some books on general knowledge."


    While he usually avoids any interaction with the media, Rahul Baba shocked the reporters in Bhadohi by expressing his anguish over what he termed as the "pathetic conditions prevailing in the state."
    "Every time I come to UP, I get angry because nothing seems to move here. No buffalo, no bullock and no dog. Everybody seems to be sleepy. People do not get what is due to them and the state government remains indifferent to the needs of the people. I would like to ask Maya aunty that at least now she leave UP," he said.
    When DCFC Reporter asked about a sudden change in his stand and looks, he gave a mischievous smile and said "Haiyennnn, it is my new avatar. I am fed up of being called as Amul Baby. This is my natural way of life. I am naturally angry young man. Haiyennnn... Now onwards I would like to be called as Rahul Rajiv Gandhi (as like Vijay Dinananth Chouhan) aiyennnn."


    One senseless opposition leader mischievously said "Rahul Baba should also visit Maharashtra and show some anger as vehicle traffic moves slower than bullock carts in UP."


    Behenji Mayawatiji said "This is real conspiracy against me. They don't like to see a dalit lady is leading from the front. I totally condemn Rahul Baba's words. He also said aunty to me which is again a conspiracy against me and dalit community."

    Thanks to Diggy Chacha for this article

    it is a non-elective position (internal congress party issue)... and so be it. It's the right of party to elect its president... and he still has to be elected by the citizens to be a part of ruling party.

    honestly I don't know much about his politics other than a few tit bits where he comes across quite forward thinking. I don't mean he is always right....but just opposing him because he is a part of the “dynasty" is not reason enough to oppose him politically ...

    I need to really get a better feeling of his political stances and where he stands on issues and don’t care for the ‘His mother is Italian’ whining crowd. I find that quite disrespectful…

    Every politician nowadays is corrupt one way or the other.
    But the difference here is if a looter happens to be completely Indian the loot money would eventually find its way to India. But when the looter is not completely Indian the moolah final destination is a foreign country. And gets distributed among his foreign relatives.
    Swiss accounts are just temporary safe havens. A corrupt Indian politician will some day want to spend that money in India. Even if he does it for his own selfishness, the money eventually finds its way to India.
