Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi Leaves For US To Bring Sonia Back

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi left for the US to be with his mother, party president Sonia Gandhi, who is there for a medical checkup. Amid speculation about Rahul’s departure even as criticism simmered within the party about his leadership in the recent elections, the Congress said that Rahul was going to the US to bring Sonia back. Party sources said Priyanka Vadra had accompanied her mother Sonia to the airport for her departure, and that Rahul would be back with Sonia possibly by the weekend. After the party’s crushing defeat in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, the leadership in Delhi — Rahul in particular — has faced allegations of inaction in Manipur and Goa where the Congress could not form the government despite being the single largest party.
