Q.

Like Bhagat Singh's Nephew Abhay Singh, who lost his deposit and came 4th in Punjab elections, Rahul Gandhi also has a sound lineage (Nehru/Gandhi) but flopped and Congress came 4th in UP. Have the voters rejected celebrity ancestry as un-important???

Today's voters are quite intelligent and instead of looking at celebrity ancestry they look for the potential of the candidate.Rahul Gandhi's childish behaviour and hurting speeches very well brought him what he desrved.

Rahul Gandhi lost because of his stand on Lokpal n disrespect to Anna.Other celebrities lost because they have no money n power to influence the voters.

One cannot expect to thrive on the sacrifices made by distant ancestors. It applies to Bhagat Sing's nephew. It applies more to Rahul because even Nehru is seen by millions of people as a thorough failure, who spoiled the Kashmir case, who succumbed to China and surrendered Mt.Kailas and Lake Manasarovar and Tibet, appeased Muslims, and his daughter is seen as scuttler of democracy and democratic institutions, and Rajiv as corrupt (a la Bofors). Rahul has yet to make contributions which will catch the eyes and hearts of people. He is immature.

People not viewing Rahul Gandhi as a celebrity .

But everyone disappointed with the performance of Congress regimes.

In my view the weakness of the Congress Party affects the image of Rahul..
