India’s opposition leader Rahul Gandhi is the President of Congress party, set to challenge Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the general election in April, and comes from the prominent Nehru-Gandhi family which has ruled India for most of its post-independence era.

Rahul Gandhi is the great grandson of India’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. His grandmother, Indira Gandhi, and his father Rajiv Gandhi also served as prime ministers. Rahul Gandhi entered politics in 2004 under the tutelage of his mother Sonia Gandhi and went on to win his father’s former constituency of Amethi in Uttar Pradesh.
