Introduction of Rahul Gandhi
Rahul Gandhi is a noted politician in India known for being a descendant of Nehru-Gandhi family whose political influence and dominance all over Indian politics was pervasive since the time the country got freedom in the year 1947.
Family and Personal Background of Rahul Gandhi
Rahul was born on 19 June 1970 in Delhi to the family of Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi, both the parents having a political association that was influential nationwide. His father was the Prime Minister of India while mother was the president of the Indian national congress. He is the grandson to the former late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and a great-grandson to the first PM of India, Jawaharlal Nehru. He is also an elder brother to Priyanka Gandhi and a brother-in-law to Robert Vadra (husband of Priyanka Gandhi). Rahul has proclaimed his identity as a Hindu Brahmin.
He did his preliminary education at The Doon School in Dehradun from 1981 to 1983 until he and his sister both were home-schooled in the aftermath of the assassination of Indira Gandhi and subsequent threats posed to them from certain extremists. He obtained his graduation degree from Rollins College in Florida and did his M.Phil from Trinity College, Cambridge in 1995. Raul Vinci was his pseudonym that he kept due to security concerns while pursuing his academic course in America.
Raul commenced his entry to Indian political in the year 2004 by declaring to contest for 2004 Lok Sabha election from Amethi electoral constituency that was his father’s home turf, politically. Rahul’s announcement then took political experts by surprise in whose opinions Priyanka Gandhi would have fared better in politics than Rahul. In contrast to the speculations, Rahul was more confident in being a part of Indian politics and in an interview to a foreign media; he censored the divisive politics in India and affirmed that he would try to placate religious and caste tensions in the country. Rahul held the position as a general secretary of the All India Congress Committee on 24 September 2007 and was given the charge of the Indian Youth Congress (IYC) and the National Students Union of India. To uphold his promise about reforming youth politics in India, Rahul interviewed and handpicked 40 think-tanks for the IYC, a move that dramatically favored the party with the increasing growth of its members up to 2.5 million. Rahul won his Amethi seat during Lok Sabha election of 2009 and did his best in the revival of the Congress in Uttar Pradesh.
During the general election of 2014, Rahul contested from his Amethi constituency against the BJP candidate Smriti Irani and defeated her by the vote margin of 107,000. However, his leadership could not save the Congress party from facing the biggest electoral fiasco against BJP and ended up with just 59 seats versus 262 seats that the Congress had obtained in the previous general election of 2009. Rahul, due to his certain political unawareness and unpreparedness, had courted mockery that became his pet peeves in public. He also accused the government in the center as “suit-boot kisarkar”, referring to a monogrammed suit of PM Modi that he wore during Republic Day meeting with Barack Obama. He also mocked government with his twisted slogan “acche din kisarkar” implying the failure of the central government on different levels, according to Rahul. He also devised quite a pejorative slogan against Modi-government by highlighting the Rafale fighter jet deal all throughout the electoral campaigns in the recently concluded general election of 2019. He advocates women empowerment and supports women’s reservation bill in the Lok Sabha and state legislative assembly seats. He welcomed abolishment of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code and the decriminalization of homosexuality in India.
One of the most popular politicians in India, Rahul Gandhi is known for his political astuteness and candid expressions on the issues that matter for the general public and the country. He has earned spotlight for putting his thoughts across to the civilians and tried hard to come out of his former image of being a novice leader to a matured and intelligent statesman of the country.

Analysis of Current General Election 2019
We have witnessed the just concluded 17th Lok Sabha election and election had been conducted in seven phases across India. It is moot question whether Mr. Rahul Gandhi can replace his arch-rival Mr. Narendra Modi to become the Prime Minister although his Congress party has not formally and officially announced prime ministerial candidate if congress comes into power in Delhi and form the next government. It looks improbable as well as impossible for him to topple Mr. Modi from his position. Although he may be able to leverage a few vote swing in the favour of his political party however it will be herculean task for him to obtain clear mandate and become the single largest party. There is no doubt that Congress under his leadership will do well in a few states and also can increase the overall seats i.e. tally in Lok Shabha however it will be uphill task for him as well as his party to dislodge Mr. Modi from his current position in the firmament of Indian polity. Astrologically his chances vis-à-vis general election looks feeble. It will require to upset the applecart which looks mostly impossible considering the planetary transit and return which he is passing through. He will have to stomach many criticisms and backbiting within his party if he fails to deliver. It can be said that India is not yet ready to see the youngest Prime Minister rather common Indians are set to repose their faith in the astute leadership and strong ability of Mr. Modi.
