Rahul Gandhi, the young General Secretary of the Indian National Congress has made it big in the Indian political arena. A fourth generation politician of the famous Nehru-Gandhi family, Rahul has made a name for himself by working very hard at the grassroot levels of the Congress party. His active involvement in the youth congress and energetic political campaigning at the recently concluded Lok Sabha Elections has resulted in a remarkable turnaround for the Congress party and brought the Congress led UPA government back to power for a second consecutive term.
Rahul Gandhi comes from a family of politicians of immense stature. His great grandfather Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru was the first prime minister of independent India, grandmother late Indira Gandhi the first woman prime minister and father late Rajiv Gandhi another popular prime minister who is often credited with many popular economic policies to have shaped the modern India.
He has been quiet magnanimous in sharing the recent successes of the congress party with his party workers. He has also distanced himself from the race of prime ministership or a cabinet birth inspite of an excellent individual effort that saw Congress party emerge as the single largest party at the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections. All these qualities make up for a fine young politician who will serve India well in the times to come.
