|JAMMU, Dec 4: Former Chief Minister and National Conference (NC) chief Farooq Abdullah on Monday welcomed the prospects of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi’s elevation to party’s presidential post, and said the younger generation’s headway within the party was a good sign for the country.|
“This is a good sign for our country that the young brigade is stepping forward. I hope he takes India to such heights where everyone is able to live with dignity, and maintains the secular image of this country,” Farooq said.
Expressing confidence in Gandhi’s leadership, Farooq said that the Congress’ strength would revive sooner or later, and consequently so will the strength of the nation.
On the possibility of the post of Prime Minister coming in for Rahul Gandhi in the future, Farooq said, “The post of Prime Minister is a distant future for him, but right now he is emerging in a very big way as a national leader. As for post of Prime Minister, that is for the public to decide, and time will come for that.”
The NC chief further added that the Gandhi scion, at present, has his work cut out for him- to work hard to unite India and bring everyone together.
