With every Congress defeat Rahul's leadership comes under scanner even as there are fresh demands to get Priyanka play a more active role within the party. Gandhi will be addressing public in Bahraich, Gonda and Sultanpur districts.

Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit taking a U-turn on her earlier remark on Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has clarified that he has "the sensitivity of a mature leader".

"When Modi ji gets scared, then he tries to spread communalism and create tension among people belonging to two religions".

His reference was to Modi's speech on Sunday, where he said: "If you create kabristaan (graveyard) in a village, then a shamshaan (cremation ground) should also be created". AICC spokesman Randeep Surjewala said, "People who have enjoyed the fruits of power for four decades and are held in high esteem by Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. they should look within themselves before pointing fingers at the Congress leadership". If electricity is given uninterrupted in Ramzan, then it should be given in Diwali without a break.

And the media is instrumental in holding the government accountable, she said. "I would say that we are not experiencing the best of times", she said .

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also mocked Rahul several times during the on-going campaign for Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.

He said it reflected Singh's feudal mindset as people like him were unwilling to accept Modi's success as he came from a humble background.

Either way, the Gandhis are well aware that come March 11, any further political reversals will not only mean a big question mark on the Congress but particularly the abilities of party vice president Rahul Gandhi.
