Never said it is time for Rahul to be PM: Digvijay

Rahul Gandhi, who turned 41 yesterday, is being projected by the party as the potential prime minister.



New Delhi: With his remarks creating flutter in the party, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Monday claimed he had never said it was "high time" for Rahul Gandhi to become Prime Minister

He said such a decision has to be taken by the party
and Gandhi himself.

"I have never said `high time`... I have said he (Gandhi) has got full potential to become a good prime minister," Singh told reporters here.

"When he (Rahul Gandhi) becomes (the prime minister)
depends on the people of the country, the Congress party and
himself," Singh said.

Gandhi, who turned 41 yesterday, is being projected by
the party as the potential prime minister and future leader
with senior leaders like Digvijay Singh noting that he has all
the "qualities and capabilities" that are needed for a "good"
prime minister.

Gandhi has set his eyes on Uttar Pradesh where
Assembly polls are due in a year`s time to help his party
capture power in a state where he led revival of the
organisation by securing 22 of the 80 seats in Parliamentary
elections in 2009.
