The question is Has Mr. Rahul Gandhi really changed or is it is again a publicity stunt or newly formed strategy by the congress masterminds?

The atmosphere is buzzing with transformation. Perhaps a change is the only thing obvious and natural and though it amazes for quite a period of time but we get acquainted with it after a while. But a change was not expected from a politician like Mr. Rahul Gandhi who since the last decade after starting his career in 2004 had shown a constant deterioration or more or less constant signs of an incompetent, irresponsible and a failed personality.

His track record had enough information to indicate that he had miserably failed in all his pursuits. His strategies, plans and ideas did not bring any productive change in the party or at any time give congress a chance to feel proud.

His track record had enough information to indicate that he had miserably failed in all his pursuits. His strategies, plans and ideas did not bring any productive change in the party or at any time give congress a chance to feel proud.

Rather whatever responsibility he took as a leader was an utter failure. The party failed in the state and Lok sabha elections under his leadership. Somehow he was pushed to the post of Vice-president by sacrificing all democratic norms. Comments poured in the media against him from all directions sometimes from his own party and most of them were against him.

News surfaced in the media that his mysterious disappearance from the country was a result of contention with his mother who was against his wishes of changes in the party structure or appointments.

But now after all this happened Gandhi has finally returned to homeland. It seems the Gandhi who returned is not the same who had left. He seems to be in a new outlook altogether. After a long time he spoke in the parliament on a couple of issues. He vehemently put his stand in the house over the farmer and land acquisition issue and mercilessly targeted the prime minister and his party for all the wrong doings. His remarks like ‘soot boot ki sarkar’ and “aapke pradhanmantri made headlines in the media.

Prior to that, Mr. Gandhi roared in a massive rally organised by the congress party which pulled a plethora of farmers from every nook and corner of the country. His speech was full of examples and well-reasoned arguments which clearly motivated the farmers that he is serious about the issue and would take this matter to the parliament against the government. And for the first time Gandhi seemed consistent in his words and actions.

Taking the issue of netizens and youth of the country Mr. Gandhi again made a very commendable effort by asking and advocating for net neutrality.He had a heated argument with Mr. Ravishankar prasad the telecom minister over the matter.All this led to the twitter and facebook crashing with #RaGaforNetneutrality. People seemed to be optimistic about his efforts and the jokes made on him took a back seat.

For the first time a highly reticent and recluse Rahul Gandhi interacted with media when he visited the Kedarnath temple. He preferred trekking to helicopter facility and said that he is here to pay homage to the people who drowned in the floods last year.The latest photograph shows him travelling in a local train to reach Punjab for a farmer rally.

However, the question is Has Mr. Rahul Gandhi really changed or is it is again a publicity stunt or new formed strategy by the congress masterminds who are trying to establish Gandhi as a national leader again.If the latter is true it will get exposed sooner or later like it happened in the past.But if Mr. Gandhi has really changed it is good for the country that a youth is on the right track.
