Islamabad. Pakistan’s upcoming leader, co-chairman of Pakistan Peoples Party, Bilawal Bhutto has been in constant touch with Rahul Gandhi, the Vice President of the Indian National Congress, discussing about how to launch the former’s career in politics.

A source, who did not wish to be named, said that both of them have met a lot of times in Gandhi’s Italian mansion and had informal discussions. He said Rahul gave some very important tips on how to stay in the limelight. He said to be natural while talking in rallies and speak from the heart. He advised Bilawal to mug up the facts before speaking so that no one questions them later.

Rahul also came up with simple statements for Bilawal based on his own experiences, like saying that the Sindh province in Pakistan is greater than Russia, or that military dictatorship in Pakistan is only a state of mind and other examples.

Most importantly, Rahul stressed the need to have a good mentor who could measure the pulse of the people and understand their needs, a kind of role Digvijay Singh is playing in Gandhi’s career.

The source said they will be contacting Hafiz Saeed for that role.
