Veerappa Moily calls Rahul Gandhi ‘Best Material’ to become the PM

Earlier, senior Congress leader P Chidambaram had said that Rahul will not be the PM candidate.

Congress leader Veerappa Moily on Wednesday said that Rahul Gandhi is the ‘best material’ to become the Prime Minister of the country. “I don’t want to say that…. the question is that ultimately he (Rahul Gandhi) is the best material for the prime minister,” Moily said, as per reports.

Moily also praised TDP supremo and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu and said that he was doing well to unite opposition parties.

He said that Congress will win in all the five States (Chhattisgarh, Mizoram, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Telangana) where Assembly elections are underway. “Things are shaping up so well, evolving so well, the opposition unity is becoming a reality, and the Congress party is picking up in all the five States. There is a likelihood of coming to power. Definitely, it adds up to the credibility of our leader Rahul Gandhi,” he said.

Congress does not seem to be able to make up their mind about projecting Rahul Gandhi as Prime Ministerial candidate. Earlier, former Finance Minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram had said that Rahul Gandhi will not be Congress’ face for the PM in 2019 in Lok Sabha elections. Interestingly, Rahul Gandhi himself had expressed the desire to become the Prime Minister at The Hindustan Times Leadership Summit 2018.

However, Rahul’s ambitions have not gone down well with the anti-Modi Mahagathbandan allies. Andhra Pradesh’s Telugu Desam Party’s minister Kalava Srinivasulu, had announced that if the party goes for pre-poll alliance then the party will not accept Congress President Rahul Gandhi as the prime ministerial candidate for the 2019 elections.

Recently Sitaram Yechury, General Secretary of CPI(M), had rejected the idea of projecting Rahul Gandhi as the Prime Ministerial candidate in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The BSP is pushing Mayawati’s name as a Prime Ministerial candidate. Even Mamata Banerjee’s name is often projected by many as a probable PM candidate for the united opposition. With the 2019 general elections only months away, the lack of a definite structure or PM candidate can be a political downside for the proposed united opposition.
