Only few weeks back, Rahul, who has been recently appointed as vice-president of Congress said, "Prime Minister's post is not my priority. I believe in long-term politics."
It caused large-scale wave in media. Political pundits started speculating as why the "young" scion of Gandhi family has "sacrificed" the Prime Minister's post?
Even if Rahul does not want to adorn the PM's post, but party sycophants are not ready to accept the fact that their "dear Rahul baba" is not interested in becoming India's most powerful man. Congress leader Digvijay Singh has once again ignited the speculation over whether Rahul will become India's Prime Minister or not.
"He (Rahul Gandhi) has not said no anywhere. What is being reported in the press has caused some misconception. If the people of the country want, then why won't he (become the PM candidate)?" Singh told reporters in New Delhi on Tuesday, March 26.
As Congress is facing its worst political moments after being accused of being involved in large-scale corruption, the oldest party in the country is trying to use "Rahul" as a face saver in the wake of forthcoming General Elections, slated in few months from now.
Moreover, opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is riding high on Narendra Modi's wave. The Chief Minister of Gujarat Modi is all set to make a comeback at the national politics after winning three consecutive assembly elections in Gujarat in December last year.
Now, only Rahul can answer, whether or not he is interested to become India's PM? But, the question is, is India ready for Rahul as its Prime Minister?
