Rahul rubbishes speculation about PM job


NEW DELHI, Feb 17 (TOI) : Rahul Gandhi rubbished the speculation about prime ministership, telling Congress state heads that he was only interested in discharging the responsibility of party vice-president.

The bid to clamp down on talk about top government job came after Uttarakhand CM Vijay Bahuguna asked him about the possibility at the second-day of the interaction with regional heads.

"Manmohan Singh is doing a good job and there is no space for such unnecessary discussion," he said. The snub, however, is unlikely to stop his projection for the next elections. Andhra Pradesh CM Kiran Reddy told reporters later that he would do his best to see Rahul as PM in 2014.

Rahul, though, preferred to focus on the organization at the interaction. He urged legislature party leaders and state chiefs to work as per their mandate. According to sources, he said differences should be resolved at the coordination committee and urged the state in-charges to hold regular meetings.

The loosely-worded plea for unity came after at least three states complained of split within the party. While Delhi PCC chief J P Aggarwal and CM Sheila Dikshit clashed, MP unit president Kantilal Bhuria complained of indifference and interference from Union ministers Kamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia. Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda alleged that central ministers and MPs were influencing the MLAs against him.

On Saturday, Uttarakhand PCC chief Yashpal Arya demanded effective steps to check indiscipline, saying the problem was acute at senior level. His comment was seen as an attack on Union minister Harish Rawat, who had revolted against choice of Bahuguna as CM and is seen to be still unhappy.

The clash between Delhi heads shook the participants on Friday. While Aggarwal accused the CM of sidelining him in the party, Dikshit shot back by saying the PCC chief does not listen to her, even complaining that Delhi corporation tickets were finalized without her knowledge. When told she was part of the panel that finalized the tickets, silence descended on the argument.

The tricky issue of Telangana echoed through the two days of discussion, with CMs of Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and West Bengal state chief raising the issue. AP CM Kiran Reddy sought early decision.

Rahul sought immediate rebuilding of the organization, urging that all pending appointments from block unit upwards be made and saying he would hold review with PCC chiefs in three months. He also urged the state heads to tour at least 10 days a month to increase contact with workers.

    Jayarama,

    " So for your Gandhi family and Congress did not have any guts to counter him"

    As per my search results, the office of Rahul Gandhi has sent a letter dated 1st Nov. 2012 to Dr. Swamy informing him that his accusations made over a press conference are baseless and concerned people will take legal action. I could not paste the contents here because it is copy-blocked. You can check with your mentor's office if they have received such a letter.

    As I said earlier, Dr. Swamy has exercised an authority given to him by the constitution and I will be happy if he benefits from it.

    In general, I don't support cheating no matter how tall an entity may be but I am not as free as Dr. Swamy to run after anybody.

    For your info ‘am the fan of AB Vajapayi and Dr. Kiran Bedi for sure.
    But I like Dr. Swamy because he is the one and only person who stood tall against Gandhi Dynasty and brought out all their misdeeds to open recent ones are the Land Scams of Robert Vadra and grabbing a building of Associate Journals worth 1600 crores for mere 50 Lacs by Rahul and other members of Gandhi Family. He unearths the scams, takes it to the court and will make sure the culprits gets behind the bar. So for your Gandhi family and Congress did not have any guts to counter him. The Harvard University has decided to remove courses taught Dr. Swamy at its annual summer school session, terming his views as “reprehensible” in a controversial piece he wrote on Islamic terrorism in India.

    All Congi's are @ jealous with NARENDRA MODI !!!Last week @ Salaya municipality in the Jamnagar district of Saurashtra, where 90 per cent of the population is Muslim & 27 seats at stake, the Modi put up 24 Muslim candidates, who were all successful. The Congress, which has won the town elections for decades, did not win a single seat.

    He was re-elected in December for his fourth consecutive term as chief minister the European Union confirmed last week that it has ended the boycott that began after the Gujarat riots of 2002 and last week BJP swept local elections, winning 47 of 75 municipal corporations across the state. Somehow media were not much intrested in the news as ususal whcih would have been otherwise if he had lost one seat.
    So RAHUL becoming PM or MODI goes near to PM chair @ this juncture might be hypothetical.

Then how come Modi will takeover Delhi Crown?Just wait and see with in 2-3 years, Modi's fate will be like BSY/KALYAN/UMAAKKA......As far as Jetmalani considered,he is now ninety and you guys know after 65-70 the human will be like KG student and beside he was been advocate of terrorist accused !!!Even he said that Ram is not good man!!!!How these BJP hypocrites digest these contradictions god knows.So RAHUL becoming PM or MODI goes near to PM chair @ this juncture might be hypothetical.

    You seem to be a huge fan of Dr. Swamy. Why don't you check about his credibility at his native village if you know some Tamils there in Riyadh ? You will get to know more about him. Also do check why he got expelled as a professor from a famous American University.

    Nevertheless, Dr. Swamy has exercised the freedom the constitution grants him and all of us equally. We should take an example from him and start investigating about all Indian girls married to foreigners and find out if they took up the nationality of their husbands or/and the citizens of their husbands taunt them as 'Indian' as we do towards Sonia Gandhi.

    Manmohan Singh has silently devivered a growth rate of above 8% for 5 consecutive years for a population of 1.2 billion people, which many economists will agree is not a joke, this lad does his job quitely and hence goes unnoticed, the Indian people love jingoism or marketability which is potrayed by Mr. Narendra Modi, who recently said every cup of tea you have is from the milk of Gujarat, if so true, it isint because of Mr. Modi but Mr. Kurien the founder of the white revolution who started it way back in 1949. he keenly ignores topics of contention like the 2002 roits, fake killings, His home minister Mr. Amit Shah's role (with his blessings)in all the atrocities committed within the state. He is a perfect Gujarati who belives in marketing. yes due credit needs to be given to him for the Nano project. Gujarat is the only state without electricity cuts, which is remarkable for the citizens of the state as well as investment and infrasrtuctural tycoons who want to set shop here. With Mr. Amitabh Bachacan the brand ambassador of the state promoting tourism, Mr. Modi has shot a bingo. His ambitions to New Delhi are well known, and why not!!! after being elected for the 4th. consecutive time from the state and Dr. manmohan Singh entering his 80's its time for change and we hope its for the best. with the advent of the aam admi party and Congress party buried neck deep in corruption and scams Indian political scene is sincerly looking for a change to upgrade the Indian image at the international stage, and who better than Mr. Modi to lift it. I sincerely dont see Rahul a charismatic leader or a great orator, he needs to develop his skills at the earliest, if he wants to hold office like his family has in the past. his sister according to me is a better bet, sh'es aware of the pulse of the nation and is proactive, smart and gentle with charectricts reminsing her grandma the late ms. Gandhi. lets hope and see how things pan out in the next 16 odd months.

    Thank you for comparing Rahul Gandhi with Rahul Mahajan at least you agree both got same standard.
    Now about the creditability of Dr. Swamy let me quote 3 incidents where he proved correct (1) He stopped Sonia to becoming PM citing the Law of Italy and getting stay order from Supreme Court (2) Qualifications of Mother and the son wrongly mentioned in the Election nomination paper as Harvard Graduates, he went to supreme court and got it removed from their profiles. (3) SIT monitored CBI inquiry in 2G scam which was possible because of his petition at Supreme Court. There are several more examples if you need I can quote in which Dr. Swamy proved right.

    Do check history of NDA when ABV was suffering from Knee-joint pain. Mahajan was as prominent as Modi is now, was secretly groomed as future PM, as a successor of ABV.

    I paste below a small para from one prominent Daily News Paper article related to Mahajan :

    Quote
    Echoing such sentiments, the RSS' Hindi organ Panchajanya said, "One young Prime Minister of India was killed in a bomb blast and a future Prime Minister was permanently put to sleep by bullets from a pistol.'' It said it was India's misfortune or divine irony that young leaders with some potential became victims of death.

    On behalf of Ismail (please forgive brother ) …I here by posting comment….
    First of let’s take a look at numbers, Modi can become PM only if BJP on its own wins at least 200 seats(like Congress 206 seats 2009 election) without any NDA allies. This is because larger the NDA, tougher for Modi to become acceptable candidate. Nitish has opposed and it is quite possible couple of others like Biju,(sena already told about susma) and akali doubtful about Modi, and these are big regional parties. Given the reality, BJP will rely heavily on regional groupings. Ground reality does not favor BJP so much to give it 200 on its own: it has no presence in the South (in Karnataka, it has split) it is not going strong in big states, it has presence only in Rajasthan, MP, Gujarath, and Chattishgarh. It has less presence in larger states like UP, Bihar, Orissa, Maharashtra, West Bengal, and so on. Moreover, Ram temple issue already close chapter (bcz people understand now they cannot build). I see a hung parliament (may be President's rule for few years) and congress comes back to power in around 2015-16 with Rahul as the PM. Whether we like it or not, this is how it looks more realistic. So if people want Modi as PM, people must give BJP 200 seats on its own – tell me be frank is it possible? Then why so much of hypes of Modi to PM? Sorry Modi…just wake up dear…its only dream…….

    Why are you gentlemen hallucinating ? When did Rahul Gandhi say that he aspires to be a PM ? Common men, be involved in some useful debate ! You yourself speculate over a point and assume congress party supporters think in your way too ? Be productive and an heir to BJP ! This time, chose a family man not a bachelor like ABV who kept his childhood sweetheart in the PM house (Ranjan Bhattacharya's mother - if you are not aware of any such lady).

    And, that you all are so propagating the future PM'ship of Narendra Modi, please tell him accept his wife first as married partner in Indian culture is of extreme respect and the life is respectful than self proclaimed bachelorhood.

    Forget about Congress, which, I am sure is happy with the leadership of Dr. Manmohan Singh.

    Joke of the year. Jethmalni rightly said, this guy is not fit to become chaprasi of any office because he has only Gandhi surname nothing else. Really pity on him & his dream.

    Not only Delhi, MP and HP everywhere congress has problems, clashes, disintegration, infighting etc. Karnataka congress is not an exception.

    Here we have Oscar, lobo, robo, siddu, guddu, pateela, patela, noor, innoor, shamanoor, somanoor, deshapande, rajyapande, paramesha, parvathi, motamma, chotamma, laadu, holige groups in Karnataka congress. President Parameshwara could not handle the infightings inside the KPCC Head Quarter in Bangalore and installed 350 CCTV cameras. But our intelligent congress people covered CCTV with hand kerchiefs and continued their job as usual. Jai Ho congress.

    Good decision by Shri. Rahul Gandhi.
    P.M. Post should go to experienced and qualified, like how it goes to most deserved person in Corporates.
    Moreover the appointed person should have certain level of freedom to take independent decisions.
