People speculate a world with Rahul Gandhi as PM after he says he is ready for the job

With the Karnataka election campaign fast approaching culmination, Congress President Rahul Gandhi was quoted on Tuesday as saying that he was ready to become the Prime Minister if his party came to power.

As per a Times of India report, Rahul was heard saying that, him becoming the Prime Minister depended on the performance of his party and if it emerged as the biggest force, he would assume the position. Along with this, he also claimed that he was confident about Modi not becoming the Prime Minister in 2019.

The report claimed that such an admission by Rahul resulted in confusion within the Congress circles, who were worried about the statement deflecting attention from incumbent Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah. Later they seemed to have regrouped and party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala issued a statement that “Rahul is the natural choice for the PM”.

As a result of Rahul’s assertion, twitter users launched a hashtag named “#ifrahulbecomespm” and speculated how things would be if Rahul Gandhi became the country’s Prime Minister.

One twitter user created a cartoon strip set inside the Parliament where controversial journalist Rajdeep Sardesai becomes the Lok Sabha speaker:

Another trolled Rahul Gandhi for his supposed statement which expressed hope of inventing a machine which can convert potatoes to gold:

Some speculated whether Rahul’s famous gaffes would then be mainstreamed:

Some general jokes were cracked:

Apart from twitter, more importantly it remains to be seen how the Indian voters take to the prospect of having Rahul Gandhi as their Prime Minister, and whether it will end up helping or harming the party.
