Rahul Gandhi is right alternative to ‘divisive’ Modi: Shashi Tharoor

Union minister Shashi Tharoor has backed Rahul Gandhi for prime minister, saying people with lesser credentials than the Congress vice-president have in the past turned out to be good leaders and Gandhi was the ‘right alternative’ to a ‘divisive force like Modi’.

Appearing on the ‘Right To Be Heard Town Hall election special of Headlines Today, Tharoor was asked why Gandhi and not more educated, more experienced, more knowledgeable leaders were not being projected by the party.

‘People with lesser credentials than Rahul have made good leaders. The Congress has a solid bench strength which will help Rahul give direction. The Congress has a very good leadership team,’ he said.
Tharoor said he himself had wondered how Rajiv Gandhi, a pilot, could lead the country, but Rajiv did an outstanding job.
