    There's legal bar on Rahul becoming PM: Swamy
    .

    .
    Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Monday criticised Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh for proposing that Rahul Gandhi take over as Prime Minister and said that legally Mr. Gandhi and his sister were barred from the post.

    In a statement, Dr. Swamy dubbed Mr. Singh as the “mouthpiece of the Janpath coterie” and said the coterie had “lost all hope on Manmohan Singh performing in the coming months as the 2G spectrum scam unravels and the list of accused lengthens with additions from the Congress.”

    He accused Mr. Digvijay Singh of treating the Prime Minister as “some kind of regent in the Maino dynasty, waiting for Rahul to grow up.”

    Dr. Swamy, however, argued that there was a legal bar on Mr. Gandhi becoming the Prime Minister “arising from Italian law which made him a citizen upon birth. He has never renounced this inherited citizenship and that he has travelled on Italian passport all over Europe on an alias.”

    Dr. Swamy said Mr. Gandhi should “learn from the experience of his mother whose attempt to become the Prime Minister in 2004 was aborted when the then President of India Abdul Kalam wrote a letter (which is still to be published) which was read by two witnesses present when Ms. Sonia Gandhi received that letter, namely Natwar Singh and Manmohan Singh. It should now be perfectly clear to Ms. Sonia Gandhi as well as her two children that there is no legal way by which any of them can ever become the Prime Minister of India.”

    What is going on?

    He travels on an Italian passport and is in the know of Indian political and defence policies?

    Actually if Congress is elected he should be allowed to. PM or not, in case of a UPA victory the power center lies in 10 Janpath and not in 7 RCR..so what the point of opposing ?

    If Sonia has been allowed to become the PM in 2004 I'm damn sure they would not have won in 2009.

    By opposing these guys as PM we are giving them power without accountability..if they are going to have power, then let that be with accountability..

    He should become PM, if for nothing else. the 7 RCR will be free to house some poor MP or Minister who does not have proper digs!

    Rahul cannot live without his Mama and so he will be in 10J.

    I am merely stating so because of the acute housing problem for the nobs in Lutyen's Delhi!

    Ray, what if Mama too shifts to 7th?

    Why has he not visited USA in a long time? Has USA discretely let it known that he will not be given visa? Or that he might be arrested by FBI in some case?

    Fishy.

    For God sake make any of these Rajmata or Rajputra PM of India, I bet CONs will be out of politics. It is easy to do dirty things behind the curtain & firing from others ' shoulder with out accountability. Any of the two does not want to be held accountable for anything but want to enjoy the power & associated goodies.

    I am sure none of the two is going to be PM because none of those are competent enough to shoulder the responsibility or has the courage to face the questions. Above all they neither have connect with the nation nor the empathy, just obliging the nation with their patronage.

    Legally he is Indian citizen because

    I think there's a bar to become prime minister or president for naturalized citizens read sonia gandhi but the same doesn't apply to rahul because he is citizen by birth, was born in India and one of his parent was citizen of India.

    btw this is assuming he didn't use the italian passport..because if he did then there could be obstacles.

    Messiah.

    Exactly for these he is a natural citizen of Italy too, because at his birth his mother was Italian citizen. Italy allows dual citizenship, India does not. So to an Indian citizen, he should have surrendred Italian citizenship latest by his 18th birthday. There just is no proof he has done it. Same way there just is no proof that Sonia has given up her Italian citizenship.

    Their are many Indian version of Zalil hamid , Subramanya swamy is one of them :taunt:

    If Congress win polls in 20years & rahul is still alive then who will become PM for Congress led UPA . Mr Swamy ? have some sence

    Even we don't like rahul becoming PM he is worst then his mom , but no one change it we people are so affectionate to dynasty politics that Nehru/gandhi family has produced 3-PM , Madam is control button of PM ( Which means she is 90% PM)

    Rahul is waiting on cards:thumb:

    On the contrary he is among the most intelligent politicians in India. He was a harvard professor for many years, and is also a harvard graduate (economics). He has all the right ideas about economy and finance. And you know, he was single-handedly responsible for exposing the 2G scam and bringing everyone to book. He has many more achievements to his credit, besides.

    And you compare him with Zahil Hamid? Really?

    He has raised some pertinent legal points detailing why Raul cannot be the PM. Do you find anything wrong with what he is saying?

    I found majority of people in this forum crying against Rahul ???? Does they having a better name for the post of the PM ? in today's Indian politics all are corrupted we need fresh and young blood like him or Akhilesh Yadav to lead our nation.Only people like him can make a change,these men having some dreams/ideas and the will to implement that for the well being of the country.Regarding Mr. Modi I am damn sure that it is not his ideas behind the growth of Gujarat but his support for the good ideas, may who ever behind the growth of Gujarat the BJP must bring them to PM office if they actually love our country (if they were able to grab the seat) .

    Yeah if young blood is the only criteria then we should just pick up some random 25 y/o and make him the PM.

    The only dream they have is to be filthy rich.

    Yeah, Modi has a young guy chained in his basement whom he tortures for ideas.
