Varun Gandhi can soon join hands with Rahul Gandhi to take on Modi
Once again the report regarding Varun Gandhi, son of late Sanjay Gandhi and Union minister Maneka Gandhi, likely to join the Congress is doing the rounds in the media. It is a known fact that the BJP MP from the Sultanpur constituency is one of the few "rebel" leaders from the saffron party who never shies away from criticising the Narendra Modi government openly. As the 37-year-old leader, who was once considered as a blue-eyed boy of the party, has been relegated to the background by the current BJP regime, murmurs since long has been rife about Varun switching sides to join the Congress. According to a report, Rahul Gandhi after becoming the party president of the Congress would soon welcome his "estranged" cousin to join the grand old party. Although, Varun shares good relationship with Rahul and Priyanka, Maneka and Congress president Sonia Gandhi, both of whom are sisters-in-law, still share cold vibes. Moreover, if Varun joins the Congress soon another fight to take control over the party would resume between the two cousins, said a political pundit.
