FILE - In this Wednesday, July 6, 2011 file photo, India's ruling Congress party General Secretary Rahul Gandhi, right, interacts with villagers during his 'Kisan Sandesh Yatra' or Farmers Message Campaign in Ahladpur, in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. India’s national election is not expected for a year, but the campaign has already begun. The opposition BJP, which has resisted naming a prime ministerial candidate from among its many leaders, began coalescing around Narendra Modi, the successful and deeply polarizing politician who launched a scathing attack against the ‘termites’’ of the ruling Congress party. Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi, long assumed to Congress’s candidate, hinted he might not want the job after all, even as he laid the groundwork for the coming election by plowing through meetings with coalition allies and party lawmakers.
