Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi has said he has ‘no chance’ of becoming the Prime Minister if the party returns to power in the coming Lok Sabha elections but added he ‘cannot say anything about distant future’.

“No chance. Since the Congress has decided on present Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as its prime ministerial candidate of the UPA,the question does not arise,” he said,while interacting with tribals here on Sunday.

“As to whether I will be PM candidate in 2014,I cannot say anything about distant future,” the 38-year-old replied when a youth in Sanali village of Danta taluka here asked him when he would become the Prime Minister.

Rahul ended his two-day whirlwind tour of Gujarat on Monday evening.
