Congress leader Natwar Singh rejects Rahul Gandhi’s candidature for the PM post

He added that apart from MK Stalin, no other leaders have supported Rahul Gandhi's candidature.

Days after the opposition came together to display their show of strength and unity in a Mahagathbandhan rally held in Kolkata, senior Congress leader Natwar Singh, has dismissed the possibility of Rahul Gandhi being their PM candidate. Singh has expressed his support for Mayawati as the opposition’s PM face.

While there has been no consensus as to who will be the PM face for the united opposition, the veteran Congress minister Natwar Singh made a big statement on the opposition Prime Ministerial candidate. He believes that this time the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati’s candidature is the strongest, dismissing Rahul Gandhi’s chances of becoming the PM.

The former Union Minister also alleged that the politics of the country rests on Uttar Pradesh, and since SP-BSP-RLD have come together, Mayawati becomes the obvious as well as the most powerful individual amongst other opposition leaders.

Dismissing Rahul Gandhi’s candidature for the PM post, Singh said that barring MK Stalin, no other opposition leader has shown faith in Rahul Gandhi’s candidature. Hence it is clear that Rahul Gandhi won’t be the PM. Singh also added this time around that the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ will remain united against the BJP.

On the other hand, the BJP has questioned the viability of Mahagathbandhan claiming that they have multiple leaders harbouring the dream of becoming PM. PM Modi alleged that the Mahagathbandhan is an alliance of corrupt parties who have no vision for the country and the only reason they have come together is to save their political existence becoming irrelevant.
