After PM now Rahul Gandhi 'criticised' by international media
9/15/2012 12:01:43 AM
Early Times Report
JAMMU, Sept 14: Just days after Washington Post criticized Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, another international reputed and most credible magazine The Economist has put question over the leadership of Congress general secretary and scion of ruling Gandhi family: Rahul Gandhi.
The magazine in its online edition had written: " the problem is that Gandhi has so far shown no particular aptitude as a politician, nor even sufficient hunger for the job. He is shy, reluctant to speak to journalists, biographers, potential allies or foes, nor even to raise his voice in Parliament."
It is one of the scathing attack on their apparent of Cong family and widely believed to lead the party in the next general election, due in another two-year.
The Indian media has so far not directly attacked Rahul Gandhi.
The comment that 'he has not raised voice in Parliament', is significant as Rahul was absent or not heard in Parliament during recent Coalgate episode when Cong party had assumed an offensive role.
Rahul Gandhi had gone in 'political shell' after poor show in UP elections, where he had personally invested much.
"He (Rahul Gandhi) needs time to start showing some skills as a leader before campaigning starts in 2014. And for as long as Gandhi does not rise, it is hard for other relative youngsters to be promoted without appearing to outshine him. That has left Congress looking ever older and more out of touch," writes magazines, whose words are taken with seriousness across the world including powerful White House.
Aartthi Ramachandaran, senior political journalist, has written a biography "Decoding Rahul Gandhi."
The magazine after going through the books writes: " …The overall impression of Gandhi from Ramachandran's book is that of a figure who has an ill-defined urge to improve the lives of poor Indians, but no real idea of how to do so. He feels obliged to work in politics, but his political strategies are half-baked, and he fails to develop strong ties with any particular constituency. He has tried to disavow the traditional role of a Gandhi (which would pose him as a Western-educated member of the elite with a near-feudal style of concern for the masses) preferring to pitch himself as a man ready to drink the dirty water of village peasants, and to eat food among the most marginalised of society. But his failure to follow up on such gestures (and many others), with policy or prolonged interventions to help a particular group, suggests a man who strikes an attitude but lacks skills in delivering real change-either as election results, or social improvement."
The Washington Post earlier this month criticizing Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had written: India's 'silent' Prime Minister becomes a tragic figure", the paper's India correspondent Simon Denyer wrote that the ''image of the scrupulously honourable, humble and intellectual technocrat has slowly given way to a completely different one: a dithering, ineffectual bureaucrat presiding over a deeply corrupt Government.
