Everyone in Cong wants Rahul to play bigger role: Khurshid

Salman Khurshid
Nagpur, Oct 8: Union Minister and Congress leader Salman Khurshid today (Oct 8) said everyone in the party is keen that Rahul Gandhi plays a bigger role, but sidestepped questions about his Cabinet colleague Pranab Mukherjee's observation that the Amethi MP is going to be a "new leader" of Congress.

Asked about Mukherjee's remarks on Rahul a few days ago, Khurshid told reporters that the Finance Minister was a senior member of the government and also a member of Congress core group. "Many things happen at the level of core group of which I am not a member," he said.

Khurshid maintained that Rahul should be asked for his views on the leadership matter. Everyone in the Congress wants the 42-year-old AICC General Secretary to play a bigger role, Khurshid said without elaborating. Khurshid was here for inauguration of Haj House.
