Rahul Gandhi to Focus on Party Work – Unique Times

Rahul Gandhi, a leader of Congress party, is taking a leave of absence from parliament to focus on party work, an official said, setting off speculation of a long-awaited change in the party to revive its fortunes. Gandhi, the presumed fourth-generation heir of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty, has led the party to a series of electoral defeats since it was handed its worst drubbing in a national election last year at the hands of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Gandhi, 44, wanted time to think, said a Congress official, who had served as a minister in the previous government. “Rahul Gandhi wants to take a short break. He wants to assess his role and the party’s future,” said the senior party official, who declined to be identified.
