We Miss Your Bite So sparse are Rahul Gandhi’s interactions with the media that the mere mention of a possible event sends the media into a tizzy. Last week, it was no different with many senior reporters rushing to the party office in Delhi to catch a soundbite from him. Rumours about a ‘personal briefing’ spread right after a meeting he had with representative heads from 51 districts, where the cash transfer scheme is going to be implemented in its first phase. It was followed by an SMS from the party’s media department announcing a press conference, mysteriously though without stating who would be doing the briefing. At the end of it all, all the rush turned out to be a waste when Jairam Ramesh and Janardhan Dwivedi were pushed forth to speak up for Rahul’s meeting.
