Diminishing Gandhis Have they been reduced to mere leaders of a Congress faction?

Diminishing Gandhis Have they been reduced to mere leaders of a Congress faction?

Let's put the question straight. Are the Gandhis in control of the Congress? Or, are they just leaders of the most powerful faction in the party? Seniors leaders of the party would vouch for the authority, moral and otherwise, of the family in public and profess absolute loyalty to it, but post-election developments suggest there is more than what meets the eye. #Politics #Sonia Gandhi #Congress #PoliticsDecoder #Rahul #Rahul Gandhi #Sonia #Gandhis #Gandhi family #Congress faction

DJ apologises to family of British nurse who killed self after "royal" prank call

LONDON (Reuters) - An Australian DJ who hoaxed a London hospital treating Prince William's wife Kate made an emotional apology on Friday to the family of the nurse who killed herself days after she answered the prank call. Indian-born Jacintha Saldanha, 46, was found hanging in December 2012, three days after she answered the call from DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian in which they had pretended to be Queen Elizabeth and William's father, Prince Charles. Saldanha put the call through to another nurse who disclosed details of Kate's condition during treatment for acute morning sickness she was suffering in the early stages of pregnancy with son Prince George, leading to headlines around the world. #Japan #Technology #France #Arabic #Middle East #Family #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #british #opinion
