Yogi U-turn: Rahul Gandhi gets go-ahead for Amethi visit

Rahul Gandhi

"Will Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath or Prime Minister Narendra Modi now decide whether an MP can visit his constituency or not?"

Responding on reports that Rahul Gandhi will be elevated as the Congress president soon after Diwali, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday stated the Congress need to clarify that they still have no faith in former's leadership capabilities as we have been listening this for the last three years.

Rahul is now the vice-president of the Congress party, and his elevation as president, replacing mother Sonia, has been long speculated.

Another BJP leader Rajeev Ranjan stated the Congress party is already accused of promoting dynasties, so the party should conduct internal elections in a free and fair manner. "But we can not say any more or less because organisational elections are yet to be done", he added.

In a letter to the Congress district president, Kumar said that the majority of police force will be engaged in maintaining law and order in the district till October 5.

According to the DM's letter, Rahul's programmes were mainly in the Kathora, Musafirkhana and Tiloi Khas areas and the sub-divisional magistrate Musafirkhana and circle officer Musafirkhana had been deployed at Isauli ghat where immersion of hundreds of Durga idols would take place on October 4 and 5. Hence, there will be a great inconvenience in maintaining peace.

"He (Rahul) will be arriving here as per his schedule on October 4 and the administration will be responsible for his security", Mishra said. Singhvi asked. He added the Amethi district administration had later "admitted to its mistake" in this case.

Singhvi also trashed Shah's alleged comment that Gandhi could not see development in poll-bound Gujarat because he was wearing "an Italian" spectacle, saying it reflected the ruling BJP's "trepidation". Often dubbed as a "reluctant politician" - though Rahul had during his recent conversation with students at the University of California, Berkeley said that these rumours are spread by BJP trolls - the Congress vice president had himself said during his recent visit that he ready to take on the new role and qualified his remark by asserting that the party would follow a democratic process to do this.

Pilot told PTI that "there is a general sentiment" in Congress that Rahul Gandhi "should take over as the party president".

Pilot added that the last names of leaders should not be treated as a disqualification in politics.

"It has been in the pipeline for long". It was the performance of a leader that ultimately decided his worth, as a surname could only take him "so far", he said.
