Badaun (UP), Feb 6: Jumping into the debate on Rahul Gandhi's prospects as Prime Minister, BJP leader Maneka Gandhi today said the moot question is whether people are ready to bring Congress back to power despite several scams during the party-led UPA government at the Centre.
“The question is whether the country wants Rahul Gandhi as Prime Minister. Whether the people want the Congress under which numerous scams have taken place in power again,” she said in reply to a question by reporters.
On an election trail in UP, sister and Congress star campaigner Priyanka Gandhi had said that for Rahul the post of party president or Prime Minister was not important.
For him, his mission of development was more important, she had said.
In Varanasi, Rahul today said he was not obsessed with becoming the Prime Minister like many political leaders but remained committed to transform Uttar Pradesh.
On Priyanka's remarks that Rahul gives time to his constituency and works for its development, Maneka said “all MPs serve their electorate and develop their constituencies.”
