Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi  has taken leave from party affairs and the parliament to 'reflect' and 'think' about party’s future after poor performances in series of elections.

According to Congress leaders, Gandhi junior needs time to think about recent events and future of the party.

A Congress leader told electronic media that Rahul has been granted a leave of absence for a few weeks. He will return and resume his active participation in the affairs of the party after his ‘reflection-holiday’.

Party president Sonia Gandhi refused to elaborate on her son's plans. "Whatever we wanted to say has been said. I am not going to add anything to this," she told reporters.

His absence comes at a time when the party is holding a nationwide discussion for preparing a blueprint for its revival.

Meanwhile, social media remained active with newsfeed mocking Rahul Gandhi’s timing for ‘introspection.’
