Change of guard imminent in Congress Party now ??

The congress suddenly appears to have been caught  in  crisis situation marked by confusion on policy issues, lack of trust in the leadership, sudden illness of Mrs Sonia Gandhi  and an intensification of internecine battles. Whether this situation will lead to a full-blown power struggle and upheaval within the party is still uncertain.

Treading on the same path yet again?

It is said that there is no armor against destiny. That has been proved once again with the sudden departure of Congress President Mrs. Sonia Gandhi to USA for an operation at a time when the Congress party was coming under attack from all corners both inside and outside Parliament. But then the Congress party has faced such scenarios in the past and got over them as well. Before leaving for her operation, Mrs. Gandhi appointed a four member team to look after the party affairs.
