Union Minister Shri Prakash Jaiswal today sought to do some damage control by saying that Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi were “totally satisfied” with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s performance and there was no question of change in leadership.
“The difficult circumstances under which Singh took charge of the prime ministership is commendable and everybody including party chief Sonia Gandhi and general secretary Rahul Gandhi are totally satisfied with his performance,” the Coal Minister told reporters here.
“There is no better leader than Singh to rule the country at this point of time and party wants him to continue with his good work,” he added.
Jaiswal, meanwhile, said Rahul wants to serve the country and is not fascinated for any post, be that of the prime minister or the chief minister.
“As far as Rahul Gandhi is concerned, the Congress general secretary just wants to serve people of the country and Uttar Pradesh. He is neither fascinated nor is trying to get any post, be it the Prime Minister or the Chief Minister,” Jaiswal said and accused the media of taking his comments out of context.
