Confident that Rahul will become PM: Alvi

The Congress on Tuesday expressed confidence that Rahul Gandhi will become the Prime Minister of the country

The Congress on Tuesday expressed confidence that Rahul Gandhi will become the Prime Minister of the country.

“All the workers and leaders of the Congress wish from the core of their heart that Rahul Gandhi becomes Prime Minister of the country. Hamein poora yakeen hai Rahulji PM banenge (We are confident that Rahul will become the Prime Minister of the country),” Congress spokesman Rashid Alvi told reporters here on Tuesday.

“He has,in him,all the qualities required to be the Prime Minister. Rahul Gandhi has his own way of thinking and is far-sighted. We are confident that whenever he becomes the Prime Minister,Rahul will be a competent Prime Minister and will take the country forward,” added Alvi.

This came about three weeks after the Congress vice-president skirted queries regarding his Prime Ministerial candidature,telling reporters and MPs in the Central Hall of Parliament that asking him whether he wants to be PM was a “wrong question”.

His remarks had led to speculation in political circles about the ruling party’s PM candidate in 2014. “He (Rahul) has never refused it. If the people of this country want it,then why won’t he become (Prime Minister)?” said senior leader Digvijaya Singh.
