Way back in 2005, when Rahul Gandhi would have been about 32 years old, veteran journalist Saeed Naqvi, who was close to many politicians, including the Gandhi Family, had this to say to a WikiLeaks reporter:
He claims that the word among Congress insiders, including those in the coterie surrounding Sonia Gandhi, is that Rahul will never become Prime Minister for several reasons. Saying that he “refused to indulge in gossip,” Naqvi claimed that it is increasingly common knowledge that Rahul suffers from “personality problems” of an emotional or psychological nature that are severe enough to prevent him from functioning as PM.
WikiLeaks released this conversation in March 2011.
It is possible that Rahul was impacted by these personality problems because of his father’s and grandmother’s assassinations, which could have left him rudderless. And, we sympathize with him.
Having said that, there’s little doubt that Rahul may one day become India’s PM. Therefore, it is in the public interest that the Congress party clarifies on Rahul’s condition, if it still persists.
Everyone knows that Rahul did not make any impact before 2014. But 2015 seems to be a different ball game.
There is talk of him spending many days undergoing a Vipasaana course in Thailand during his 60-day absence. Plus, his recent remarks about the BJP have hit home with their sharpness and sarcasm (suit-boot, his quotes on Lalit Modi (Chota Modi), RSs, and more).
From Pappu, the BJP elevated him to RaGa then to Rahul Gandhi and now it addresses him as Shri Rahul Gandhi on national news channels.
Could this be a signal that Rahul’s personality problems are now a thing of the past?
We don’t know about that, but the people of India want more from Rahul Gandhi. They want him to spell out his vision from India, they want to see his intellect, they want to see action that goes way beyond protesting against the BJP, and of course they want him to rise above what he was famous for in 2014 — mediocrity.
