Rahul Gandhi indicates that he may be the prime ministerial candidate of Congress
Rahul Gandhi in a press interview gave clear indications that he may be the next prime ministerial candidate of Congress. In an interview with Dainik Bhaskar, he said that given an opportunity, he was ready to accept the role.
This was the first time he made any such indications. This indication, just a day before the All India Congress meet on 17th of January, is creating lots of speculation. It is quite certain that Manmohan Singh will not be continuing his role. Manmohan Singh had clearly said that he is not thinking of a third term as PM. He had said that the position would be handed over to someone new.
He also clearly stated that there was no specific role for Priyanka Gandhi in the 2014 elections ending the doubts of the people.
Predictions were always being made that it was going to be a Modi versus Rahul fight and now it seems that the predictions are going to come true.
Modi versus Rahul fight will be the biggest show stealer of 2014 lok sabha polls.
