Indira Gandhi systematically killed (internal) regional leadership, to pre-empt any threat to her leadership, and aligned with external regional leaders .The creation of external leaders like Pawar & Mamta Congress are purely the making of this sort of leadership .
The current Congress had but to align with other regional parties like DMK ,AIDMK etc and became slaves to these regional leaders at the cost of the local Congress representatives.
I did sent a personal letter to you about your ancestors’ disservice to Congress and advised you to work to bring back a re-united Congress and to fight future elections in all the 530 seats without any coalition.
I predicted that if you are not serious about completely changing the Congress thought process,you would be the last President of INC and Congress will be by name only as an All India Party just like the Communist Parties in India who continue to call themselves as All–India parties . This long term disease cannot be wiped out easily though – Your party, the Congress , will gradually die due to this Cancer.
Further, your (the Rajiv Gandhi) family still controls Congress ONLY for the sake of the family security and not to protect or develop the Congress as a political party – This cannot continue.

NB : Please note that INC has got now just a few MPs more than AIADMK or AITC in the new Lok Sabha – What I predicted on 2nd January 2014 has already happened .And the pity is that there is no Indira Gandhi or V P Singh in the present INC to bring out a split – there will be no accountability.
