New Delhi, Jan 24: AICC chairperson Sonia Gandhi is a "workaholic" and won't even listen to her children when it comes to work, her son and party MP Rahul Gandhi has said.
"Me and my sister have been telling her for the last five years to take a holiday. But she has refused to take a break," he told reporters here on Wednesday. Persistence does not work with her when she makes up her mind on something, he said at a luncheon hosted by AICC Media Department Chairman M Veerappa Moily. My sister and me have tried every trick in the book," Gandhi said in response to a question related to the recent illness of the Congress President due to which she was hospitalised on the New Year day.
On the debacle in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh Assembly polls, he asserted that "the Congress does not have its back up against the wall. Politics is not like an off and on switch. You win and you lose. It does not mean that you are in or out".
He spoke on a number of issues including the BJP, the Gujarat poll debacle, the aspirations of the youth, his plan to tour all States, Bundelkhand.
