Congress in a bind

Rahul-Gandhi-750

The Congress ship has been rudderless for months, after Rahul Gandhi offered his resignation, accepting moral responsibility for the party’s dismal performance in the Lok Sabha elections. That it is taking such a long time to find a successor speaks volumes of the state of affairs in the party (“Congress Party to choose interim President today,” Aug 10, Gulf Today).

In fact the inordinate delay in filling the vacuum at the top has led to many upheavals in the ranks like in the case of Goa where 10 Congress MLAs moved to the ruling party. Demoralisation is rampant at all levels in the party and the person who replaces Rahul should be one who can inspire party workers at the grassroots level.
