Now updated with a new chapter on Rahul Gandhi
The Congress party has always stayed one step ahead of the opposition
by constantly reinventing and re-aligning itself to stay in sync with
the political realities of the day. Its president, Sonia Gandhi, pulled
off a master-coup in 2004 by declining the prime-ministership, while
the incumbent Congress Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh is the
first prime minister since Nehru to lead the party into two Union
government terms. In 2013, Rahul Gandhi was elevated to the post
of Congress vice-president amid much fanfare and optimism. Tasked
with reviving the grand old party, the young politician remains,
in the minds of many, the best hope to lead the Congress into the
next century, marking a new moment in the Congress’s concept of
‘continuity with change’.
In his bestselling book 24 Akbar Road, seasoned journalist and
veteran Congress watcher Rasheed Kidwai puts together an incisive
and engaging account of the Congress’s shape-shifting nature and its
tenuous hold at the Centre, providing a dispassionate observer’s glance
at affairs within the Congress. Kidwai brilliantly tracks the story of
the contemporary Congress in the years after the Emergency, using
the Congress seat of power at 24 Akbar Road as his vantage to draw
a compelling account of the Congress leadership from Indira, Sanjay
and Rajiv Gandhi to Narasimha Rao and Sitaram Kesri, to the present-
day trinity of Sonia Gandhi, Manmohan Singh and Rahul Gandhi.
In this revised and updated edition, Kidwai analyses Rahul Gandhi’s
appointment to assess what the Congress needs to do to remain
India’s nerve of power in the coming years, and whether the new vice-
president can rally the party to a third consecutive victory at the Centre.'
