Vadra From Moradabad?


Just about a week ago, Priyanka Gandhi invited a handful of the old family loyalists for tea.

one was a fabled technocrat; the second was a big-time journalist in Kalantar newspaper; and the last was an editor in an important English daily newspaper. What transpired in her own chai pe charcha was this: She reminded the gathering that they have been friends of the Gandhi family since the days of her grandmom, Late Indira Gandhi. But, she said, these are rather bad times for the party. She said that she has full faith in the abilities of her dear brother Rahul. And she wants that he should be declared the party president soon and given the full responsibility of the Congress. The party will fight the 2019 general elections under him. And if that gambit fails, she herself will enter fulltime politics. Priyanka also told them that Robert (Vadra, her husband) is very keen on entering active politics. She also dropped a hint that the family desires Robert to contest the Lok Sabha polls from the Moradabad constituency. It is learnt that after the tea meet ended, these loyalists went to a famous restaurant in Khan Market and unanimously lamented that even worse days are awaited for the Congress!
