  1. NEW DELHI: He has never held public office, once likened power to "poison", and saw his politician father and grandmother assassinated. Now Rahul Gandhi is poised to take over as leader of the party that has ruled India for much of its history. The 46-year-old's expected nomination as president of the Congress Party follows years of speculation that he would succeed his mother in the role he has been prepared for since birth. The son, grandson and great-grandson of prime ministers, Rahul has carried the burden of expectation since his father Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated in 1991. His reputation as a reluctant leader and his lacklustre performance in the 2014 general election campaign, which he fronted, had cast doubt over his suitability for the role. But analysts say the Gandhi family's tight grip on the party leadership - dating back to India's first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru - made his ascension almost inevitable. His mother Sonia has led the party for 19 years and has worked tirelessly to ensure her son's eventual succession. But he faces an immense battle to revive the ailing center-left party ahead of the next national polls due in 2019. A Financial Times editorial last month called Rahul an "amiable and pleasant fellow who lacks the will to win power or the killer instinct necessary for the cut and thrust of political battle in India". Just 58 percent of Indians view him positively, according to a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center earlier this year that put Prime Minister Narendra Modi 30 points ahead of him in the popularity stakes. Life of privilege "He will be always seen as a dynast. But much will depend on how he delivers results for the party," said Gurpreet Mahajan, political studies professor at Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi. "His only shield to criticism will be performance." Rahul's supporters argue that he has landed some punches in recent months after a lengthy post-election period during which Modi's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) appeared unassailable. Others, however, say a dip in the BJP's popularity has more to do with a slowing in growth under Modi, the son of a tea-seller who has repeatedly riled Rahul as a "shehzada" or prince. Rahul was born into a life of privilege, but his younger years were cloaked in tragedy. He was 14 when his grandmother, prime minister Indira Gandhi, was slain by her Sikh bodyguards in 1984 as revenge for the storming of the Golden Temple in Amritsar. Just six years later his father Rajiv was killed by a suicide bomber when campaigning for re-election. "In my life I have seen my grandmother die, I have seen my father die, I have seen my grandmother go to jail and I have actually been through a tremendous amount of pain as a child," he once said in a TV interview. "When these things happen to you, what I had to be scared of I lost. There is absolutely nothing I am scared of." Rahul was educated in India and at Harvard and Cambridge and first worked in business management in London before winning the family constituency seat of Amethi in Uttar Pradesh state in 2004. After a stint as head of its youth wing, his profile rose further when he became Congress vice president in January 2013. But he has struggled to carve out a reputation as a politician in his own right, not helped by the fact his younger sister Priyanka brims with the charisma he is accused of lacking. He rejected offers to enter the last Congress government, instead promoting causes such as right-to-information legislation he regards as key to curbing rampant corruption and a food security bill that critics say India can ill afford. He has been at his most impassioned defending the secular tradition personified by his great-grandfather Jawaharal Nehru, India´s first prime minister, whose socialist model framed the post-independence economy.
  2. Army soldiers patrol the entrance of the Gaddafi Stadium/AFP File photo The Sri Lankan cricket team has indicated strong reluctance to visit Pakistan for the third and final T20I scheduled to be held on October 29 at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore. According to reports, forty contracted players of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have handed a letter to the board indicating that they do not wish to travel to Lahore for the last T20I against Pakistan. The letter, signed by the entire current squad and contracted players back home, has requested the board to consider a venue change. "SLC will have a quick chat to the players very soon. We don't intend to disturb them in middle of a series, but we are left with no option but to address the issue. The ICC also will meet the players on Saturday to brief them about the situation in Lahore," Cricbuzz reported, citing an SLC source. Earlier following the conclusion of ICC board meeting in Auckland, New Zealand, SLC had told PCB it was ready to send its team to Lahore for the third and final T20 on October 29, as scheduled, according to sources. The Gaddafi Stadium successfully hosted the Independence Cup and PSL final earlier this year, marking the return of international cricket to the country following the 2009 attack on Sri Lanka team.
