Rahul Gandhi Biography



राहुल गांधी (जन्म: 19 जून 1970) एक भारतीय नेता और भारत की संसद के सदस्य हैं, और भारतीय संसद के निचले सदन लोकसभा में उत्तर प्रदेश में स्थित अमेठी चुनाव क्षेत्र का प्रतिनिधित्व करते हैं। राहुल गांधी भारतीय राष्ट्रीय कांग्रेस से संबद्ध हैं। राहुल उस नेहरू-गांधी परिवार से हैं, जो भारत का सबसे प्रमुख राजनीतिक परिवार है. राहुल को 2009 के आम चुनावों में कांग्रेस को मिली बड़ी जीत का श्रेय दिया गया है। उनकी राजनैतिक रणनीतियों में जमीनी स्तर की सक्रियता को बल देना, ग्रामीण भारत के साथ गहरे संबंध स्थापित करना और कांग्रेस पार्टी में आंतरिक लोकतंत्र को मजबूत करने की कोशिश करना, प्रमुख हैं। अनुभवहीनता के चलते राहुल ने मनमोहन सिंह की सरकार में मन्त्रीपद लेने से इंकार किया है। आजकल राहुल अपना सारा ध्यान राजनीतिक अनुभव प्राप्त करने और पार्टी को जड़ से मजबूत बनाने पर केंद्रित कर रहे हैं।







Rahul Gandhi (born 19 June 1970) is the Vice President of the Indian National Congress and the Chairperson of the Indian Youth Congress and the National Students Union of India. Gandhi has served as an General Secretary in the All India Congress Committee and represents Amethi as its Member of Parliament (MP). He is the second-ranked member of the Congress Working Committee.


Gandhi comes from a politically influential family. His parents, Rajiv and Sonia Gandhi, have served as the Prime Minister of India and the President of the Congress respectively. He grew up in New Delhi, where his grandmother Indira Gandhi, was serving as Prime Minister until her assassination in 1984. His father was likewise assassinated in 1991. Due to security concerns, Gandhi constantly had to shift schools in his youth. He studied abroad under a pseudonym, his identity being known only to a select few including university officials and security agencies.


After obtaining degrees in international relations and philosophy at the universities of Rollins and Cambridge, Gandhi worked at the Monitor Group, a management consulting firm in London, before establishing the Mumbai–based technology outsourcing firm, Backops Services Private Ltd. In 2004, Gandhi re-entered public life; he ran for and won his father's old seat of Amethi in India's national legislature. A few years later, in 2007, Gandhi was elected as an general secretary of the Congress party, a previously executive post held by his father, and by his great-grandfather, Jawaharlal Nehru. Described as a youth icon, Gandhi is the leader of the Indian Youth Congress and the National Students Union of India. Amidst calls from Congress party veterans for his greater involvement in party politics and national government, Gandhi was elected Congress Vice President in 2013.
