Gandhi had spent the greater part of 2011 touring Uttar Pradesh, trying to garner support for Congress and extending the party's rural base.


At 42, Gandhi is projected as the young face of Congress, and one who will, in time, take over the reins of the party from his Italian-born mother Sonia. Anointed as the 'Prime Minister-in-waiting' by the media, Gandhi is expected to eventually become prime minister if Congress and its allies retained power in national elections due in 2014.


Rahul comes from an illustrious family of freedom fighters and politicians that have over generations passed on the baton of power from father to son. Son of Sonia and Rajiv Gandhi, grandson of Indira Gandhi and great-grandson of Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first prime minister, Rahul Gandhi boasts of ancestors who shaped a nation's destiny in their 40s, achieving towering heights.
