India Against Corruption
What is Rahul's strategy
After the defeat, Rahul says he will quit as President of Congress party. As usual, congress men plead with him to stay and he would "firmly refuse".
Finally he will quit.
Then, someone will be appointed President who has the direct and indirect blessings of Sonia's family. He will stay as President for a few months, when Sonia's "disciples" will slowly start criticizing the new President and the criticism will become louder and louder. Then, they would start a campaign that Rahul's leadership was the best and plead with Rahul to come back.
Then, Rahul would "reluctantly" come back. The control of the dynasty over the Congress party will continue for ever, whatever may be the fortunes of Congress party.
