After breaking off with the BJP in August, the Bihar chief minister has been on an Opposition unity mission, having met an array of Opposition leaders including Rahul Gandhi and Arvind Kejriwal during his last Delhi visit.
Rahul seems to have no problem with his party continuing to treat him as the Congress chief despite his recurring assertion of being “just an ordinary Congress member”. Nothing makes this more evident than the ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra for which Rahul, despite insisting that he isn’t leading but only participating in the march, has been projected by his colleagues as the mascot.
Ashok Gehlot might think of the Congress president’s post as a Hobbeson’s choice. He does not want to let go of his Rajasthan fiefdom.
Ghulam Nabi Azad, since leaving the Congress, in his first political rally in Jammu on Sunday afternoon, announced the formation of a political party, but did not announce its name.
Rahul Gandhi addressed a ‘Mehangai Par Halla Bol’ rally at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi today and charged Modi and the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) with spreading fear and hatred in the country.
