“These are irrelevant questions. It’s all smoke.” This was how Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi today described speculation about his becoming the PM and getting married while addressing India Inc at the annual CII meet here.

“I got press guys asking when you are getting married. Somebody else saying,boss,when are you going to be the Prime Minister. Somebody saying,no your are not going to be PM,somebody say may be you will be PM. There is good possibility.

“It is like the American polling charts. 47.3 per cent of possibility that he might be Prime Minister… The only relevant question in this country is how can we give our people voice?” he said while addressing the Annual General Body meeting of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) here.

Earlier on one occasion this year,Rahul has said that it was a “wrong question” to ask about him becoming the Prime Minister.

His comments came days after Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh sought to pitch for the Gandhi scion for the top post,saying the current arrangement of a separate party chief and Prime Minister has not worked.

Congress rejected Singh’s contention saying the equation between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and party president Sonia Gandhi was an ideal model that can continue for future.
