Congress in Crisis because of Gandhi’s Exit ?

Ahead of crucial assembly polls in Haryana and Delhi Congress party is in serious trouble with the leadership crisis as its top brass is wary of facing challenges with Gandhi or without Gandhi? Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister Salman Khurshid stirred a fresh controversy, saying ” Congress party’s biggest problem is our leader Rahul Gandhi has walked away. While talking to reporters he said Unfortunately despite our earnest pleading Rahul Gandhi decided to step down and resign from the president post. Salman Khurshid has summed it up the grand old party Congress is facing an existential crisis there is a vacuum at the top despite Sonia Gandhi stepping in as interim chief. The family leadership, which Modi aimed to destroy with his poll campaign of congress mukht Bharat, worked for Congress unequivocally till the 1980s. But with the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi in 1991, the Gandhi family appeared to have lost its charismatic connect with the people. Sonia Gandhi ran the organization with a band of loyalists who had personal agendas.

Rahul Gandhi assumed Congress’s leadership with baggage of legacy that runs backward till great-great-grandfather Motilal Nehru. He was expected to extend the legacy and not break it. When did that he faced vacuum? Rahul Gandhi built a parallel leadership chain of younger politicians in the party and wanted them to run the organization much to the chagrin of the old guard. The so-called Rahul Gandhi’s men – Sachin Pilot in Rajasthan, Jyotiraditya Scindia in Madhya Pradesh, Jitin Prasada and RPN Singh in Uttar Pradesh, Sanjay Nirupam and Milind Deora in Mumbai, Ashok Tanwar in Haryana, Ajay Kumar in Jharkhand, Pradyot Debbarman in Tripura and even Navjot Singh Sidhu in Punjab have been sidelined in the party. The old guard is firm in the saddle and holds the organization in tight leash to keep it subsumed nominally to the Gandhi family. The Sachin Pilot and the Jyotiraditya Scindia battle for supremacy in Rajasthan and Madhva Pravesh has rocked the party ahead of polls in three states.
