Rahul leaves Congress in the lurch 17.3.2017 DNA: Money
After remaining incommunicado to his own party leaders for about crucial 48 hours that led to the slipping of Manipur and Goa — where the party had tantalisingly come close to power — from the party’s net, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday flew abroad to join his ailing mother. Amidst dissensions within the party over the crushing poll defeat, coupled with mismanagement in Manipur and Goa, the party’s chief spokesman Randeep Singh Surjewala announced Rahul’s travel abroad to bring Sonia back. Surjewala said that Rahul was travelling to be with his mother, Congress President Sonia Gandhi, who is there for a medical check-up. He did not disclose the place where Sonia has gone for the check-up, nor stated her ailment. On Thursday, the Congress leaders also began talking about the need for a grand alliance, conceding that their party alone cannot fight Narendra Modi. Paradoxically, when Rahul was quite reluctant in patching up an alliance with the Samajwadi Party, Congress general secretary CP ...

Congress to explore state-specific alliances 16.3.2017 Deccan Herald - National
After the poll debacle in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, the Congress has admitted that it alone cannot counter Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The grand old party would now explore state-specific alliances with regional parties to put up a formidable challenge to the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. As demands for structural changes grew louder, the Congress said the promised changes would be rolled out as the party gears up to face a "new reality" and "by the end of 2018, you will see that we are heading along with a proper strategy". "We will do everything that is required to challenge and expose Modi's politics. We will be looking at state-specific political challenges. It can vary from state to state," AICC spokesperson C P Joshi said here. Joshi said the political narrative had changed in the country post the Lok Sabha elections in 2014, and Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi was the first to sense the change and counter it through a grand alliance in Bihar. Senior Congress leader Mani Shankar ...

Congress bats for strategic alliances to counter BJP in 2019 16.3.2017 Business Standard: News Now
Strategic alliances, rather than building up a national narrative against the BJP should be the focus of the Congress, ahead of the 2019 national elections, party strategists feel.The Congress, which was keen to present the recent five assembly polls as a 3:2 match, had to be content with 1:4 after the BJP manipulated smaller parties to form governments in Goa and Manipur. Rahul Gandhi has charged the saffron party of using money power to block the Congress from coming to power in the two states.After veteran Mani Shankar Aiyar suggested going back to the 2003 formula under which party chief Sonia Gandhi forged strategic alliances and took back power from the NDA at the centre in 2004, senior leader CP Joshi expressed similar views.Noting the political narrative has changed in the country, Joshi cited the example of Bihar assembly polls in 2015 where a JD-U-RJD-Congress grand alliance defeated the BJP-led NDA.According to Joshi, a similar formation could have stopped the BJP in Uttar .

Rahul Gandhi surfaces in Parliament after poll debacle 15.3.2017 DNA: Top News
Even as murmurs within the party grew over his leadership, Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday surfaced in the Parliament - first time after poll results - rejecting the impression that his party was on a decline. Talking to reporters, he said overall "that is not a bad result." He attributed the BJP's sweep in Uttar Pradesh to multiple reasons, saying "large part of it is polarisation." He vowed to make the Congress fighting fit by the next round of Assembly elections and then the Lok Sabha poll. And for that, he said, "We do need to make structural and organisational changes." Rahul's comments are seen bolstering morale of his leaders, who are shivering at the UP results, calling it a harbinger of the party's wipe-out in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. "We are little down in UP, but look the Congress formed its government in Punjab and won the election in Manipur and Goa," he said. He told his MPs, who went to meet him at the party office inside the Parliament House complex that the Congress ...
