    Rahul Gandhi, arguably India's most eligible bachelor, said on Tuesday he wasn't interested in marriage. Nor was he in the race for the prime minister's post - this despite his recent appointment as Congress vice-president which was widely regarded as a precursor for him to be the party's candidate for the top job in the upcoming Lok Sabha election.

    In a rare free-wheeling conversation with Congress MPs and journalists in Parliament's Central Hall, Rahul said he did not wish to tie the knot and start a family as doing so would lead him to develop a vested interest in the status quo at the expense of his mission to democratize the Congress and decentralize its decision-making.

    "If I get married and have children, then I will become a status quoist and will be concerned about bequeathing my position to my children," he said. This was the first-ever confirmation of Rahul's much-speculated disinclination to marry and start a family. Rahul has so far fended off questions about his marriage by saying people would get to know about his plans at the appropriate time.

    He also denied that he aspired to be PM and lamented that Congress as well as other parties had degenerated into oligarchies where a tiny elite call the shots. Asked about his interest in the PM's job, he said, "Asking whether you want to be prime minister is to ask me a wrong question." The response defied the growing clamour from the ranks that he be declared the Congress's candidate for PMO in the 2014 polls.

    The disclaimer also comes at a time when the move to project Narendra Modi as BJP's candidate for the top job has gathered momentum, and belies the assessment that Rahul's agreeing to Congress vice-president suggested that he had finally come around to be projected as the party's spearhead for the 2014 polls.



    Congress immediately rushed to insist that Rahul's comments may not necessarily be the last word on whether he will accept the responsibility. Party spokesperson Rashid Alvi said, "All Congress workers desire that Rahul Gandhi become the PM one day and we are sure that our wish will be fulfilled."

    Alvi further said that what Rahul thought of himself was one thing and only reinforced that he did not hanker after any post for sure. "That he does not want to be the PM is his thinking. But as far as workers of Congress party are concerned, they want him and I am sure one day he will become the PM of the country," he added.

    The Congress spokesperson said Rahul's statement contrasted sharply with the intense jockeying for position in other parties, and showed that he, like mother Sonia, was not in politics for selfish ends.

    Talking to MPs and journalists, Rahul built upon his renunciatory note by declaring Mahatma Gandhi to be his inspiration and by detailing his plan to disperse decision-making power in the party. He looked relaxed and handled all questions put to him with ease, in what contrasted sharply with the impression of aloofness about him.

    Rahul said Gandhi wielded such influence because he never hankered for power. He added that he was inspired by 'nishkam karma' or selfless pursuit of action, the central doctrine of the Bhagavad Gita. He said he was not interested in power, having seen prime ministers from close quarters.

    Picking up from where he left in the party's brainstorming session in Jaipur in January, Rahul said he wanted to rebuild the party from the ground up, empowering workers. He said decision-making in Congress had come to be concentrated in 15-20 people, resulting in a situation where the aspirant for a legislative council nomination in Andhra Pradesh had to come to Delhi. "Why should this be so?" he asked.

    Rahul said the trend of cartelization was true of other parties as well. "I want to give voice to the middle-tier... empower middle-level leaders. There are some parties in India which are run by one leader, two leaders, five to six leaders and 15 to 20 leaders. My priority is to empower MPs as also legislators in states." This was seen as him referring to the BSP, SP, BJP and Congress.

    He also said that Congress being the lead player, whatever it does will have a ripple effect on others, stressing that other players often mimic what the Grand Old Party does. "Now BJP also has a core group," Rahul said referring to the saffron outfit's embrace of the organizational mechanism which was first conceived by Congress.

    At last he has thought of the country's future. We must thank him.

    Now, could the Vadra kids do a Bilawal and adopt the Gandhi name? :D

    on the internet most people are educated internet savvy people . most of them belong to the upper caste hindu segment which hates the nehru gandhis for muslim appeasement .

    but the common man in india who is illiterate does not have a problem with the nehru gandhis .

    Maybe Rahul's mantra is---

    Power without accountability is so much more fun! Why become PM when you can wield power behind the scenes?

    "If I get married and have children, then I will become a status quoist and will be concerned about bequeathing my position to my children," - spake RG.

    He is right, 100%. Nehru, Indira, Rajiv etc had children, they bequeathed their position to descendants and hence were status quoists. I fully agree with him.

    Muslim appeasement is a fact. A hard and harsh fact. You think OBC must have taken muslim quota kindly when it cuts into their 27%? SP, RLD, RJD are even bigger shamelessly appeasers.

    Illiteracy is reducing gradually. Now common is beginning to think. And that is dangerous to Cong and other appeasers.

    These kind of statement are just eyewash in order to divert direct firing from himself & also to inflate his size from his actual one. He is trying project himself a some one lager than life.

    It require balls to take ownership & responsibility be it marriage or prime ministership. It takes hell of a man to lead from front.

    He has learnt a thing or two from his mother MT (mahaa tyaagi). She walked away from PM-ship only to control the govt. from behind the scene. He is not only giving up on the PM's post but also saying that he will remain a bachelor. He knows how the average Hindu respects a person who gives up family life for the country. This is a new way to get votes, I guess! Soon, CONGRESSwallahs will compare him to Bhishma, Bharat, etc.

    Re: Rahul Gandhi says he does not want to marry or have kids or become

    May be he wants to put himself in the league of APJ Abdul Kalam & AB Vajpai.

    May be he is trying to compete with Modi, as he is also as good as bachelor.

    The reason given to remain unmarried are hard to digest & very much unreasonable, as Indian law also allows living -in relationship as law full act. Picture must be clear whether he wants no women in his life at all.

    But one thing is not clear whether he shall remain bachelor or celibate as well? Though I am not doubting his credentials as Male, as same was evident with one Amethi incident that He Can Do also.

    Will this make much of difference to India?:confused: His family has made enough damage to the country from past 60+ years

    So it doesn't matters what rahul gandhi says :lol:

    What a lame excuse!! As if people who have kids are forced to plant their kids in politics.

    Why does not he retire from politics and show that he is not a status quoist. Loser!

    Or he may have found out he can't father a child so better announce Aajivan Brahmacharya and use tragedy as an opportunity and try to see if people are fooled by it and vote. Well just saying :D

    Priyanka has brainwashed him. He is following spiritual Buddhism now. So far no action from him, empty talks are good for media consumption only. He doesn't want marriage, PM chair, children but he wants vote!

    He should realise what damage his party done for India and leave India in whatever condition India is now. That will be a great service.
    Or may be he is playing a very big game.
