Rahul Gandhi is Congress's PM candidate: Veerappa Moily

New Delhi, Dec 24: Petroleum Minister M Veerappa Moily, who took the additional charge of Environment and Forests ministry on Tuesday after the resignation of Jayanthi Natarajan last week, said on Tuesday that Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi is the party's prime ministerial candidate for the next Lok Sabha elections.

Moily also attacked BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, accusing the latter of talking too much. He said people want someone who can deliver and not just talk.

On the resignation of Natarajan who reportedly would be busy to help the party's preparations for the upcoming polls, Moily said it was wrong to say that she did a bad job.

Natarajan, on the other hand, refused to comment on her replacement with Moily, saying it ius the prime minister's prerogative to take such calls. The timing of her resignation was questioned as she quit the Cebinet just hours before Rahul Gandhi told industry leaders during a FICCI programme that slow decisions were hurting growth.

Another senior Congress leader Janardan Dwivedi also said that Rahul Gandhi is their future leader.
