Veteran politician Mallikarjun Kharge will be the Congress’ first head from outside the Gandhi family in 24 years.

Five generations of the Nehru-Gandhi political dynasty have been party presidents and it has given India three prime ministers.

But in 2014, Narendra Modi led the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to a decisive victory and his Hindu nationalist platform has gained more support since then.

Many have blamed Congress’ dependence on one family for its decline.
