Rahul, a darling of the Congress: Manmohan

Tuesday, December 05, 2017

New Delhi: Rahul Gandhi was today hailed as the "darling" of the Congress by former premier Manmohan Singh after he was poised to become the party president and was also described as a "capable leader" who would make a "very good" prime minister.

As Congress leaders heaped praise on the 47-year-old scion of the country's most fabled political dynasty after he filed his nomination for the post of party president, Anand Sharma and Kapil Sibal described it as a "historic moment."

"Rahul ji has been the darling of the Congress...Rahul Gandhi will carry on the great traditions of the Congress party," the normally taciturn Manmohan Singh told reporters at the All India Congress Committee (AICC) headquarters here after Rahul Gandhi filed his papers.

Noting that Sonia Gandhi as Congress president has served the party and through it the country for the last 19 years, Manmohan Singh said Rahul Gandhi will carry on the great traditions of the Congress party.

Terming Rahul Gandhi as a "capable" leader, Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad exuded confidence that he will turn out to be a "very successful" leader.

"And under his leadership, the Congress will regain power," Azad added.

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh said Rahul Gandhi would make a very good prime minister.

"If you ask me, I think he will make a very good prime minister," said Amarinder Singh. Lok Sabha polls are due in 2019.
