New Delhi, Nov 21: Stating no displeasure in having Rahul Gandhi as the Prime Minster, SP general secretary, Amar Singh has asked Congress on Friday, Nov 20, to make Rahul Gandhi the Prime Minister since the party calls him its trouble shooter.
"Rahul Gandhi is given the credit for solving all problems whether it is the sugarcane Ordinance issue or release of a relief package. Congress should make Rahul Gandhi the Prime Minister if he is doing all this. We have no problem in talking to him as PM about issues," Singh said.
Rahul Gandhi has been credited with solving the controversial sugarcane ordinance issues and also for the Rs 7,266 crore relief package for development of drought-hit backward region of Bundelkhand which covers parts of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh which was passed in the union cabinet on Nov 20.
The deadlock on the sugarcane ordinance issue was removed after the government announced amendment of the ordinance following Rahul Gandhi's meeting with the Manmohan Singh.
As per the amendment, the government announced the restoration of the State Advisory Price (SAP) and made the mill-owners responsible for the payment of difference between Fair and Remunerative Price (FRP) instead of putting the burden to the state governments.
