This political family is India’s informal 1st political family. The connection with politics goes back to the times of Motilal Nehru who was the dominant leader of Congress party during pre-independence era. The wand passed on to Jawahar Lal Nehru, the 1st Prime Minister of India. After him, Indira Gandhi and then her sons: Rajiv and Sanjay also followed their political tradition and joined the party. Then Sonia Gandhi succeeded in bringing a spin in the Congress Party electoral lucks. Her daughter, Priyanka Gandhi takes immense interest in politics, however, at present Rahul Gandhi has captured the driver’s seat. He may well be the future Prime Minister of India.
