Media reports that Congress names Sheila Dixit as CM candidate for UP polls was not unexpected. According to ‘loyal’ Congress leaders, members of Gandhi family, irrespective of their capability; can only rule the country and cannot be asked to head state governments which is too small a position! In view of this, Congress was looking for a candidate who is pliable and acceptable to Gandhis. Who else, other than Sheila Dixit? India was liberated from British rule but one family continues to rule over everybody. It is time, leaders in this party muster ‘some’ courage, stand up to this family and prove they have people’s support and can lead the party and the nation ably.
