Prime Minister to handle finance portfolio for time being?

New Delhi, Jun 25: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh may handle the finance portfolio for some time after Pranab Mukherjee resigns.

According to sources, Congress chief and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi is not too keen on an outsider assuming charge in the vital ministry at a time when the economic slowdown has sent alarm bells ringing.

Pranab Mukherjee, who has been nominated by the UPA as its candidate for the presidential elections, is expected to quit on Tuesday.
