The duo did everything that a candidate does before an election—meeting party workers, interacting with the masses and holding closed-door sessions with the local leaders in the Gandhi dynasty’s home constituencies. But despite the news cameras following every move they made, they shrewdly managed to remain ambiguous when asked the big question: will they join active politics?
Even as the two chanted the ‘don’t know/can’t say/ perhaps later’ mantra comes news that both Rahul and Priyanka have become primary members of the Congress. No one in the party is clear about whether the duo will contest elections this time. But Congressmen point out that the buzz within the party is that there could be a surprise.
