Will become PM if elected MPs want: Rahul Gandhi

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, on a two-day visit to his constituency Amethi, said that on Thursday that he was ready to become prime minister if elected MPs choose him for the post. Addressing a press conference in Amethi after a gap of around 10 years, Gandhi said, ‘I will only accept the post of PM when Congress MPs would elect me as their leader after the elections.’

Hitting out at his adversaries in state politics, he said, ‘A family decides the fate of the politicians in Samajwadi Party while in Bahujan Samaj Party it is done by a single person.’ He charged the BJP of not being serious on the issue of corruption. ‘The BJP too is not cooperating with us to deal with corruption as six important bills are pending in parliament due to their uncooperative attitude,’ he  alleged.
