Power of youth

Tomorrow's future lies in the hands of today's youth. The youth must not only excel in fields like sports and education, but also politics. If they participate actively in politics it will be very good for the development of ourcountry.

Itwill be the same if Rahul Gandhi comes to power in 2014. Our country will surely prosper when enthusiastic youth like Rahul come into power. I wish our country prospers.

Rahul Gandhi in politics is required and essential for today's India. Our country needs someone who is not only aware of the current position of the country, but who is also young.

Makings of a good leader

Rahul Gandhi taking over as the vice-president of INC may be dynastic succession but his commitment & willingness to work indicates that he would become a good leader.Vasireddy Mahavir,

Bad news

I doubt if India is the largest democratic country. The continuous rule by Congress under the Gandhi family has changed India into a 'democratic monarchy'. Even though many others are capable of leading the party better than Rahul Gandhi they are not given the opportunity.

Slim hopes

Today, the Congress is ruling India in such a way that it has become an example on how political parties must not be run.

The elevation of Rahul Gandhi is a new tactical approach from Congress. But will people ever forget the hike in prices during Congress rule? Prices of all commodities from vegetables to petrol have gone up. This had an adverse effect on the poor and lower middle class who struggle to make a living. Congress cannot expect any kind of support from them. Even worse is the problem of corruption. The taxes paid by the people are going into the pockets of politicians, rather than being used for the country’s development. Earlier the Congress used to lead by service, but now it leads by money.

Moreover, Rahul does not have the political experience to rule the country. The only positives are that Rahul’s entry may encourage other youngsters to enter politics.

Being a youngster, he may offer a chance to young and talented brains.

If Rahul imbibes Chacha Nehru’s qualities, then he can propel the country on the path to progress.
