    “The entire exercise seemed staged, since the Gandhis’ hold over the party is absolute.” That’s going to have to change in order for Congress to recover.

  • Rick Johnson

    ‘But Congress’s electoral defeat has been long in the making for a number of reasons: bad governance, corruption, a lethargic economy, nepotism, and more.’ India’s problems can be summed up in one word – socialism. The Congress Party is a socialist party and it has kept India badly governed, corrupt and poor because of its socialism. Since India ditched the Congress Party and liberalised, it has prospered. The Congress Party is a historic relic. Best it just dies quietly without inflicting to much more damage.
