It is more or less confirmed now that Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi does not have the courage and stamina to face the challenges plaguing the party and work out strategies to strengthen the cadre.
And whenever the Congress party is in crisis, Rahul tries to run away from the scene, leaving the party to his mother Sonia Gandhi who is more energetic than son even at this age.
Even as the party is yet to recover from the recent electoral debacle in Assam, Kerala, West Bengal and Tamil Nadu and make self-introspection, Rahul has chosen to run away from the country.
On Monday, the vice president tweeted that he was going abroad for “a few days” but did not specify the country he is heading for.
“Traveling out of the country for a few days on a short visit. Thanks again to all who met & wished me y’day, truly grateful for your affection!”, he said on Twitter.
Rahul celebrated his 46th birthday on Sunday amid speculation that he could be elevated as the party chief on that day. His 56-day mysterious sabbatical last year had created much controversy in political circles with the BJP making his absence in the midst of Budget session of Parliament an issue.
