Rahul ready to lead party: Tharoor


New Delhi: Senior Congress Leader and Member of Parliament Sashi Tharoor on Wednesday said that Rahul Gandhi is ready to lead the party.

Tharoor said that the a generational change in the party is inevitable even though top leaders of the congress are tightlipped over the issue whether Rahul will be taking over the position of the Congress president from his mother Sonia Gandhi.

The MP also blamed the media for tarnishing the image of Rahul Gandhi. He said, “Rahul may have erred in not speaking on the issues he felt about publicly. He will be more accessible to the media. Rahul’s image has been made by the media. Media and social media have been unfair to Rahul Gandhi. I have urged Rahul Gandhi to be on Twitter.”

On Rahul Gandhi’s elevatrion, another Congress leader Sachin Pilot said, “When Rahul Gandhi is elevated it will happen through consensus. Whatever will be done will not be a wish list of one or two or four leaders. There will be unanimity and the choice of the Congress party and workers and that will happen when the time is right.”
