Gandhis name Varun and Priyanka for UP

New Delhi, Aug 4 (): Gandhis are back in news. Maneka Gandhi has said that her son Varun would make a great CM of UP and Priyanka Gandhi is likely to elevated as general secretary in charge of organization or be made in charge of UP unit of Congress.

UP is witnessing a law and order situation and Mulayam Singh’s son Akilesh is running a government that is facing brickbats. Maneka Gandhi keeping in line with the family tradition to show a dynasty succession pattern has announced that her son Varun is most suited for the UP CM post.

Congress which now formed a grand alliance in Bihar now looks forward to Priyanka Gandhi to lead the battle in the upcoming bypolls and in other states. Priyanka was in charge of her mother’s and brother’s constituency and she proved to be an effective campaigner who outwitted Amit Shah.

Janardhan Dwivedi who is now general secretary (organisation), will be dumped. Congress now sees UP and Bihar as the route to get back to centre stage. Rahul Gandhi will continue to be the face of Congress along with Sonia.

Congress leaders have been pitching for Priyanka even during the Lok Sabha poll as many feel that she has the appeal and charm of her grandmother. Maneka Gandhi on the other hand feels that her son who won the second time from UP is the right choice. The reason being that Varun Gandhi does a lot of reading and writes columns in various newspapers as the criteria for being a CM.

Since present CM Akilesh does not write columns and his reading habits are not known except for conducting star nites with the Bollywood stars, Varun Gandhi seems to be the right choice for Maneka.

UP BJP chief Bajpai has created a Facebook page proclaiming him as the next CM. Modi who waxed eloquent on the shezade (prince) of Congress will have to take a call on Sanjay Gandhi’s son being projected as UP CM candidate.
