New York Times, the Gray Lady, the Newspaper of Record:https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/22/opin ... andhi.htmlThe Remarkable Comeback of Rahul Gandhi
The opposition leader is challenging Narendra Modi by offering social peace as a public good.
A large measure of Mr. Modi’s anxieties has to do with the emergence of Rahul Gandhi, the 48-year-old president of the Indian National Congress, the leading opposition party. Hailing from a family of prime ministers starting with his great-grandfather, Jawaharlal Nehru, grandmother, Indira Gandhi, and father, Rajiv Gandhi, Mr. Gandhi is scripting quite a remarkable political comeback.
Mr. Gandhi has made a turnaround over the last 18 months with sharp social media campaigns and assured public speaking, interacting with audiences in town hall settings, and making it a point to address press meetings, something that Mr. Modi has refused to do during his five years in power.
Congress might win a whole 10 seats more than its 2014 tally!! Which other political genius has managed it in India's history? Remarkable feat by Rahul Gandhi.
