Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh today stood by his comments that Rahul Gandhi lacked the temperament of a ruler, a statement the party’s rivals had used to say Rahul was not prime ministerial material.
He also said there would be “some critics” in the Congress but that “does not stop us from supporting him”.
“I will never go back on my words. Why don’t you give him the credit of winning elections in 2004 or give the credit to Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi when they won in 2009? Why do you want to play up only one thing,” he told TV channels.
