Paes: Priyanka would make a fantastic PM
New Delhi, April 26: The on-going Lok Sabha election has managed to draw everybody's attention. Be it the politicians taking pot-shots at each other, or candidates filing nominations, nothing seems amiss from the public view.

Even sportspersons are now taking keen interest in the polls and tennis player Leander Paes reveals why is he so interested in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. Speaking to The Telegraph, Paes said that different strategies are unfolding this election season.

"There's Narendra Modi with his vision, his form of idealism. Then there is the Aam Aadmi Party which has made corruption an issue. There is Rahul Gandhi and his sister, who are a remarkable lookalike of their paternal grandmother," he said.

Paes added that Priyanka Gandhi seemed to have the passion to lead the country. "I know little of politics. Priyanka is not a candidate herself, but she's definitely a political entity.

She seems to have the passion to lead the country. If Priyanka is interested, I think she would make a fantastic prime minister," he said.

On asking him to pick a favourite politician, Paes said that 'you won't find me picking one.'
