    NEW DELHI: Congress has "consensus" over the leadership of Rahul Gandhi as its prime ministerial candidate, a party spokesperson on Monday said that amid speculation that he may be anointed as the party nominee at the AICC meeting being held here on January 17.

    "Right now Congress party wishes that Rahul is projected as PM candidate ... If this announcement is made, we all will be very happy. Right now there is a consensus in the party on his leadership ... Today we feel people are looking at a face," party spokeswoman Priya Dutt told reporters at the AICC briefing.

    She was replying to a question as to who is the candidate of the party for prime ministership, especially of the younger generation, at a time when BJP has rooted for Narendra Modi.

    To another question on whether Rahul is the panacea for all ills facing the party, she said, "We should not think of anything as a remedy."

    "I do not agree....We have never mentioned anything like this," she said when told that the party had earlier spoken of a third term for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

    Another party spokesman, Bhakt Charan Das, dismissed suggestions that Gandhi should be blamed for the drubbing received by the party in the just-concluded assembly polls in four states.

    "I don't think you can fix the blame on one person," he said when asked as to how Rahul could be named the PM candidate of the party after the debacle in the assembly polls in which he played a key role in campaigning and strategy.

    Dutt said that since Rahul became the party vice-president in January this year, his focus has always been to work for the organization and he has never shown preference for any other job.

    Besides, she also added that there has always been "subtle" projection of Rahul for the top job. "There has not been an aggressive projection, but there has been subtle projection from the beginning," she said.

    yes sir eee bob , We, the people of India do really want Mr RaGa to be our prime ministerial candidate and be what Sarah Palin was to Obama campaign , to the Modi campaign :thumb:.

    P.S : Sarah Palin contributed very much to the Obama win by making stupid comments like " I can see Russia from my Home " .
