The news comes amid growing speculations on Manmohan's resignation. PMO informed that Manmohan Singh will hold a press conference at 11 am on January 3 at the National Media Centre.
Many leaders inside the Congress party have been demanding the party eadership to announce the prime ministerial candidate for the Lok Sabha elections 2014.
Earlier this week, there were rumours that PM has asked Sonia Gandhi to relieve him from important duties post-Lok Sabha polls. He will reportedly mentor Rahul Gandhi.
The press conference will be Singh's second such interaction in his second term as the Prime Minister, which began in May 2009 though he has met five editors and a group of television editors once each. He had addressed a press conference in his first term (2004-2009).
