Slowly but surely, a replacement for Rahul Gandhi is emerging in the Congress. Yes. It is going to be Priyanka Vadra, sister of Rahul and daughter of Sonia Gandhi. It is now reliably learnt that Priyanka has been made party general secretary with special responsibility of reviving the party in Uttar Pradesh. With Jyothiraditya resigning as incharge of Western UP, Priyanka, who is incharge for Eastern UP, has been given the responsibility of the whole of Uttar Pradesh.
In order to project her as the future leader, the Congress is planning a yatra in UP very soon. Priyanka has already written to UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath that she would not need any VIP protection as she does not want to ‘inconvenience’ the common people. On Thursday, she also tweeted in memory of Nelson Mandela, whom she called Mandela uncle. She said Mandela advised her to join politics. So, she is sounding the right notes and is making the right moves to take the political plunge. So, in due course of time, she would take over the Congress.
