Tewari hopes Rahul becomes PM after Manmohan

New Delhi, Jan 3 : Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari Friday hoped that Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi becomes the prime minister after the general elections following Manmohan Singh's announcement that he won't seek a third term.

Answering queries after the prime minister's press conference here, Tewari said that Rahul Gandhi was "natural leader" of the party.

The prime minister, Tewari said, had stated that he had led the government for the last 10 years successfully and "in 2014, when elections were held, he would hand over the baton to another prime minister".

"From the point of view of the Congress, we do hope that Rahul Gandhi who is the natural leader of the Congress party, would be the rightful person, once bestowed with blessings of people, to be the carrier of that baton," Tewari said.
