Congress Hopes Rahul Becomes PM After Manmohan
By DMO Affiliate
The Congress hoped that party vice president Rahul Gandhi becomes prime minister after the general elections following Manmohan Singh's announcement Friday that he won't seek a third term. Answering queries after the prime minister's press conference here, Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari said Gandhi was a "natural leader" of the party. Manmohan Singh also referred to the 2002 Gujarat riots and said that "if by a 'strong prime minister' you mean that you preside over the mass massacre of innocent citizens in the streets of Ahmedabad, that is the measure of strength, I do not believe that sort of strength this country needs, least of all in its prime minister".
