Why right-wing people are crying foul about Rahul Gandhi being the Prime Ministerial candidate is not understandable. Being a Nehru-Gandhi scion, he has all the right qualities to make an ‘excellent’ Prime Minister. It is everyone’s knowledge that the Congress remains the only alternative political party with a pan-India presence, and therefore, would be the ‘natural fulcrum’ for any national alliance. If Rahul Gandhi is projected as Prime Ministerial candidate, the Congress will get a majority in the upcoming general elections.
Any decision on the PM candidate put forward by the Congress and its allies will take place through established processes and conventions which will have to be representative of the interests of the larger coalition. Gandhi's inclusive style of leadership, a willingness to reach across the political divide, the empathy extended towards aggrieved sections of the society, a commitment to the pluralist fabric of the country, paired with a distinctive charisma, humility and remarkable awareness, all suggest that he would be able to handle the highest office in the country.
