Rahul Gandhi

Congress Vice President and campaign chief Rahul Gandhi may sound confident in his rallies, but no opinion poll before the election has given him or the party any chance. Multiple polls predict that the Congress is likely to face a whitewash and Gandhi trails Modi by a huge margin when people were asked to choose who they would prefer as prime minister. Gandhi may well be left attempting to cut his losses in the upcoming election and with few allies alongside, is facing an uphill task in the upcoming poll.
