DNA exclusive: Rahul Gandhi, Congress politics and his travels abroad! | India News
New Delhi: The Congress Party celebrated its 136th founding day on Monday, December 28, but Congress President Sonia Gandhi and former party leader Rahul Gandhi missed the event. In a video message, Sonia Gandhi urged party leaders and workers to unite to “fight dictatorship” in the country and protect its democracy, constitution and people.
However, we learn that Rahul Gandhi went abroad on Sunday afternoon for a short personal visit and would be absent for a few days. The party did not disclose where he was going, but reports say he left for Milan in Italy.
After being criticized, Congress said Rahul Gandhi had gone to meet a sick relative and grandmother and was not on vacation. Chief Congressman Randeep Surjewala said: “Rahul Gandhi went on a personal visit for a short visit to meet a sick relative, who is seriously ill. He didn’t go out on vacation. He also met his maternal grandmother this time. of the year, every year. I don’t think the BJP should object to him visiting a sick relative. ”
Rahul Gandhi recently met with the President and then made a statement in support of the Farmer Agitation. His enthusiastic support for the protesting farmers showed his political face, but it was too short. The farmers’ movement has already ended a month, and in those 33 days, Rahul Gandhi has tweeted up to 30 on the issue. Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, however, hit the Center and demanded that the Union government listen to farmers’ protests and take back the new farm laws, but avoided the media question about Rahul Gandhi’s absence. .
Former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill once said: “Politics is not a game, it is serious business. Contrary to this, Wayanad Congressman Rahul Gandhi has hardly shown his political seriousness, which is why the country’s oldest party has now been reduced to just 52 seats, as he leads the country for over 50 years.
This is not the first time that Rahul Gandhi has gone on a sudden vacation. Earlier in February this year, when Madhya Pradesh’s congressional government was facing problems, Rahul Gandhi was overseas. When the party contested the recently concluded Bihar Assembly elections, Rahul preferred to vacation in Shimla. In legislative elections in Haryana and Maharashtra also in 2019, he was not visible most of the time.
According to information given in the Lok Sabha, Rahul Gandhi made 247 trips abroad from 2015 to November 2019. The former head of Congress has made an average of 62 trips abroad each year, and about 5 times in a month he has been abroad.
On the 136th day of the founding of the Congress party, it should be noted that Mahatma Gandhi wanted to dissolve the party and turn it into a social service organization after independence, but the leaders’ greed for power in made a dynastic organization.
Notably, the Congress was founded by a British bureaucrat Allan Octavian Hume, who came from Scotland to India in 1849. When the First War of Independence took place in 1857, Hume was an administrative officer or district collector of Etawah in the ‘Uttar Pradesh. He laid the groundwork for the Congress Party in India in 1885.
Its first session, held in then Bombay province, brought together 72 representatives, including AO Hume and some British officials. Other influential people included Dada Bhai Naoroji, Judge MG Ranade, Feroz Shah Mehta and Badruddin Tyabji. It functioned as a safety valve for the British Raj from 1885 to 1947, and its aim was to eliminate the possibility of rebellion among ordinary Indians.
