Rahul Gandhi's Biography

Rahul Gandhi is an Indian politician and member of the Parliament of India, representing the Amethi constituency. He was born on 19 June 1970. His political party is the Indian National Congress.

Gandhi comes from a politically influential family. His father, Rajiv Gandhi, has served as the Prime Minister of India and has been President of the Congress. His mother Sonia Gandhi is currently serving as President of the Congress. 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.


In March 2004, Rahul Gandhi announced his entry into politics by announcing that he would contest the May 2004 elections, standing for his father's former constituency of Amethi in Uttar Pradesh in the Lok Sabha, India's lower house of Parliament. Rahul Gandhi won with a landslide majority, retaining the family stronghold with a margin of over 100,000. Rahul Gandhi was appointed General Secretary of the All India Congress Committee on 24 September 2007 in a reshuffle of the party secretariat.


On 27 September 2013, Rahul Gandhi surprised everyone by openly criticizing Prime Minister of India and his government for coming out with an ordinance to undo the effect of the order passed by Hon'ble Supreme Court of India by which convicted criminals could not contest election.
