    Rahul Gandhi now more than a match to Narendra Modi: Moily

    Rahul Gandhi
    New Delhi: Rahul Gandhi has emerged as “more than a match” to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the aspiration of the party and youth is to see him as the country’s PM, senior Congress leader M Veerappa Moily said.

    Asked about media reports suggesting that senior leaders like NCP chief Sharad Pawar and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee, both of whom were earlier in the Congress, may be nursing an ambition to lead the UPA, he said, “Ambition is different, but practical reality is another (matter).”

    “The Congress has a pan-Indian person and identity,” the former chief minister of Karnataka, stressing that only a party having nationwide presence fits the bill to lead the opposition bloc against the BJP.

    The former Union minister claimed the Congress’s victory in the recent bypolls in Rajasthan is a clear indication that the NDA government is facing a lot of “unpopularity” and the “national-level graph” of the prime minister is “steeply coming down”.
