New Delhi: Congress hopefuls are busy trying to impress party chief Sonia Gandhi and her son and party general secretary Rahul Gandhi. And why not?
With the buzz of an imminent cabinet expansion growing louder, ambitious Congress hopefuls are keeping their fingers crossed. They are also eagerly looking forward to a special session of the All India Congress Committee (AICC) next month where new office-bearers will be named.
"If not in the cabinet, at least in the AICC," this is the muted refrain among the hopefuls.
And they are trying to impress Sonia Gandhi and Rahul with their individual record, loyalty to the Nehru-Gandhi family and their social and regional background.
