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?

BJP-Sena seat-sharing woes Can Modi magic cover up leadership vacuum?

Seat sharing talks between the BJP and Shiv Sena, the oldest and longest serving alliance partners in contemporary Indian political history, should have been a comfortable affair. Even though ground situations have been altered a bit and the terms of a 25-year-old agreement were to be accordingly revised, the negotiations should have been discreet and settled in time. #BJP #Narendra Modi #PoliticsDecoder #Shiv Sena #Haryana #Maharashtra #Assembly Elections #Modi Magic #Uddhav Thackerya
