Two sides of the same Rahul Gandhi

While resentment against party vice-president Rahul Gandhis style of functioning is growing in the Congress, many party MPs are also upset with his lack of participation in the Lok Sabha. He attends Parliament regularly, but is never seen making interventions or leading from the front to try to put the government on the mat. He slips in and slips out and the party, depleted in strength and down on morale, is just waiting to see the day when Rahul starts acting like a leader, which they believe would energise the parliamentary contingent and also change his image as a reluctant prince.
