Nagpur: Union Minister and Congress leader
Salman Khurshid on Saturday said everyone in the party is keen that
Rahul Gandhi plays a bigger role, but sidestepped questions
about his Cabinet colleague Pranab Mukherjee`s observation
that the Amethi MP is going to be a "new leader" of Congress.
Asked about Mukherjee`s remarks on Rahul a few days ago,
Khurshid told reporters that the Finance Minister was a senior
member of the government and also a member of Congress core
group.

"Many things happen at the level of core group of which I
am not a member," he said.

Khurshid maintained that Rahul should be asked for his
views on the leadership matter.
Everyone in the Congress wants the 42-year-old AICC
General Secretary to play a bigger role, Khurshid said
without elaborating.

Khurshid was here for inauguration of Haj House.
