As Rahul Gandhi prepares to take on the top job in his party, union minister Jitendra Singh told NDTV the promotion is unlikely to reverse the Congress' losing streak. "Don't you think 50 is too old to be coming of age?" Mr Singh, who is a minister in the Prime Minister's Office, told NDTV. Mr Singh is off by three years - Mr Gandhi turned 47 in June. He is expected to replace his mother, Sonia Gandhi, as Congress chief by the end of the month. This week, he has been campaigning in Gujarat, the home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah.
