Rahul not in PM race: Priyanka Gandhi ‎

Becoming Prime Minister is not the "central focus" of Rahul Gandhi's politics, according to his sister Priyanka, who said that Manmohan Singh is "extremely good" and a question of change does not arise at the moment. On a campaign trail in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka also backed Union Home Minister P Chidambaram, saying she feels "sad" about the attacks on him in the 2G spectrum case when he has an "onerous and huge" responsibility towards the people of this country. Priyanka said that for Rahul the post of party president or Prime Minister was not important and for him his mission of development was more important.
"You see the political career of Rahul Gandhi that whether he should be the party president or Prime Minister, but neither he nor us see it that way...he is more concerned about what he is doing. "I do not think that is the central focus of his politics. We have an extremely good Prime Minister. We are fortunate to have a person who is honest and works well and I don't think this question arises at the moment," Priyanka told reporters here. She was replying to a question on whether the time has come for Rahul to become Prime Minister, a demand that is often made by sections within the Congress.
