There is nothing more ridiculous than making Rahul Gandhi as PM of India. Congress is the destroyer of my country and we need to get rid of these sharks.

But just for sake of one person (Rahul Gandhi) we cant raise the topic. I think India does’nt need a younger and immature PM who once said “I could have been Prime Minister at the age of 25, if I wanted”.

Now coming to Mr. Manmohan Singh and his colleagues ability to take decision, it has become a questionable in UPA 2 tenure. In this case is PM in a state to recruit a Technocrat (like Montek Singh) to handle crucial job like Finance Ministry to tackle many issues like fiscal deficit, monetary policy, job creation, reforming many pending bills, keeping growth intact while controlling inflation and etc.

At the same time, we have seen people like Rahul Gandhi, Milind Deora and Jyotiraditya Scindia become active politicians and gone on to become Members of Parliament. What is surprising is that most of the younger lot, be it from the congress or the BJP, are sons and daughters of established politicians. There seems to be no place for young people to be a part of the political setup. Its been an oft-repeated statement of almost all political parties through the years. I guess they will be happy as long as dynastic succession takes place. It runs in the family.
