New Delhi: The Congress on Monday appointed MP Rahul Gandhi as the All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary in a reshuffle of the party secretariat.

The 37-year-old MP from Amethi had announced in the party's plenary at Hyderabad last year that he was ready to play an active role in the organisation if the party leadership decides.

The Congress Working Committee (CWC) now consists of the following: Sonia Gandhi, Manmohan Singh, A K Antony, Ahmed Patel, Ambika Soni, Arjun Singh, Ashok Gehlot, Digvijay Singh, Janardhan Dwivedi, Margret Alwa, Prithviraj Chouhan and Rahul Gandhi.

There have been demands from party leaders, including AICC General Secretaries, that Rahul, who has been described as a future leader and potential prime minister, should be inducted into the organisation as general secretary to enthuse the party rank and file.

The secretariat level changes in the AICC are being planned amidst possibility of mid-term polls.

Though, Rahul led the party campaign in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections without much success, the party leaders, including AICC General Secretary Ashok Gehlot, have termed it as a blessing in disguise.

Earlier, it was believed that the changes in the organisation would be made after state units were revamped.

However, nothing much has been done barring the replacement of Delhi Congress chief Ram Babu Sharma by JP Aggarwal two weeks ago.

With mid-term polls looming, the party feels it would be a better idea to prop up the central organisation. It is also believed that the party is keen on a youthful look.

According to party sources, Rahul's entry will be the perfect remedy for the beleaguered Congress, which has been under pressure from all its allies in the past few months.

Past tense for Rahul

As the Congress did a review of its electoral debacle in Uttar Pradesh, party insiders came up with an uncomfortable conclusion – Rahul Gandhi's somewhat aloof and corporate style of functioning did not fetch dividends in the long run for the Congress.

Party sources said the Gandhi family was upset over the showing in the state and the one casualty of this could be Rahul, who may have to give up his ways of zooming past the mass of voters, without making a lasting impression.

The Congress had 25 seats in the outgoing UP Assembly and won three seats less in the April-May elections despite whirlwind tours by both Rahul, with some help from his mother and party president Sonia Gandhi.

According to poll analysts, the party vote share fell from 8.9 per cent in 2002 to 8.6 per cent, it could retain only seven of its 25 existing seats and only 66 per cent of its earlier supporters voted for it in this election.

The Rahul Gandhi style contrasts sharply with that of his more popular sister Priyanka, who Congress functionaries insist makes a better impact on voters because she builds a personal rapport with voters.

    don't know him personally (unfortunately Cry), not impressed by his political activities / statements.. so i highly doubt it.  i was not impressed by RG either, but India is clearly benefitted by International policies he laid down  (
along with Sam Petroda,  pl. correct me if i am wrong)  I'd love it if Rahul surprises me at some stage. He does have the looks Wink.

Agreed... blood, it appears, is thicker than money after all.

And here money makes its inevitable appearance.

At a subconcious level I suppose so. The uneducated masses are swayed by the romantic poetry of politicians...the rose-tinted view is deceptive but powerfully convincing.

Do you see any great leadership quality in Rahul ?

Sam Petroda - whom I had the opportunity to meet at Chicago. But at the age of 11 the message of his importance didn't hit home - is held responsible for the "telecom revolution." He's a smart man both Rajiv Gandhi and Manmohan Singh have relied on. I say if you're smart enough to pull in such a tech-savy heavyweight, then you definitely have potential as a leader.

And for the record, I definitely thought (at first) that this was a thread for Chatty-Rahul to show his face now and then Tongue LOL

    He is good looking, young, contemporary and not a seasoned politician yet.
    Is Indian Congress Just Nehru-Indira -Gandhi Family? No.. When Priyanka's children enter the politics , a new name will be added to congress.. Are Asians..still used to that system of Kingdoms..kings..prince....Why affection to the people of the political families without any basis? We love and implicitly trust celebrities.
  1. Do you see any great leadership quality in Rahul ? With mom to guide him , he will do fine just like his dad did..
