Mr.Jairam Ramesh, supposedly one of the few original thinkers in the Congress party, has been sacked from the group earlier formed to look into future challenges and opportunities to assist and advise Rahul Gandhi. It is evident that JR has not been obsequious enough and has dared to use his thinking faculty. He has been misled by the moniker,"think tank". 'To tank' means to 'give up'. A member of a think tank is expected by political parties to give up thinking. JR's exit poses another question. Is Rahul as impetuous as his father? Rajiv Gandhi infamously showed the door to AP Venkateswaran, Foreign Secretary, in a Press Meet.
