Vice president Rahul Gandhi girlfriend Veronique Cartelli
“He finally took the plunge!”, wrote the Times of India. Rahul Gandhi had long hesitated. Now the 42-year-old stepped up to the legacy of India’s legendary political dynasty, but with some moral help of Rahul Gandhi girlfriend Veronique Cartelli. The ruling Congress party on the weekend officially named him vice of his mother, party leader Sonia Gandhi. So Rahul as the engine will pull in the big elections in 2014. “I’m for the people of India and the party fight with everything I have,” he promised in his inaugural speech.
Already Rahul’s great-grandfather, his grandmother and his father were prime minister. The pressure on the “Prince” was huge – the Gandhi regarded as myth. But times have changed. Today, Rahul has to lean against the decline of the traditional Gandhian party whose core supporters are mainly the poor and the rural population. But do we see wedding bells with Rahul Gandhi girlfriend Veronique Cartelli?
With the Hindu BJP party a second major party has grown. Furthermore, Gandhi’s party stands for corruption scandals and the fragile economy in the crossfire. Sonia Gandhi warned, the party ran the risk of alienating themselves from the middle class and the urban youth. So India is set for a showdown in 2014 between Rahul and BJP leaders Narendra Modi to. Modes is considered very talented – and as dangerous to him, the pogrom of Muslims in Gujarat in 2002 is blamed. Today he tries to strip the image of the Muslim hater and to present themselves as benevolent father of his country. Rahul will be unquestionably the “poster boy” in the election campaign, and especially because of Rahul Gandhi girlfriend Veronique Cartelli.
At 42, he is a youngster among India’s politicians – that the average age of the leadership team is 65 years. The acting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is even 80 years old. The 42-year-old had been chosen until January vice-president of the Congress Party. This fueled speculation that he would – in case of success of the Congress Party in national elections in May 2014 – take over the post and thus a say as more representative and heir of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty, the fate of India. Gandhi, who is the way, just as his mother Sonia related to the leader of the Indian independence movement Mahatma Gandhi, however, made it clear that the post of prime minister was not his priority, and added that he believes in long-term policy.
