    Berkeley: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi hinted at an US university interaction Tuesday that he was ready to be the Prime Ministerial candidate in the 2019 general elections.

    Rahul began his two-week US trip today, and his first stop was the University of California, Berkeley.

    During a chat, the moderator asked Rahul: “When the UPA was in power, there was a great clamour for you to be part of the executive, to become a Cabinet minister, even the Prime Minister… In 2014, they wanted you to be the Prime Ministerial candidate which you declined. And you are very likely to face the same demand in 2019. Are you ready to now take charge in an executive role?”

    Rahul answered: “I am absolutely ready to do that. But the way our party works… We have an organisational election process that decides that. That process is currently ongoing. To say that decision would be mine, would not be fair. That is being decided by the party.”

    To the moderator further probing whether Rahul was open to the idea, he said: “Yes”.

    Addressing Berkeley students, Rahul Gandhi attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, blaming him for the violence in Kashmir and saying he had "opened up space for terrorists in the valley".

    During his speech at the prestigious American university, Rahul said the Congress had broken the back of terrorism in Kashmir by 2013, but it returned when the BJP forged an alliance with the PDP in Jammu and Kashmir.

    “By 2013, we basically broke the back of terror, I hugged (then) prime minister Manmohan Singh and told him it was one of the biggest achievements,” Rahul said.

    “So he (Modi) massively opened up space for the terrorists in Kashmir, and you saw the increase in violence,” Rahul said on foreign soil.

    Rahul also admitted that arrogance had crept into the Congress party around 2012 and “we stopped having conversations with people”.

    Rahul added India runs on the dynasty formula and that it was unfair to forever berate him about it. “Most of the country runs like this. That is how India works,” he told Berkeley students.

    Nehru became PM on his own vote as Patel withdrew from contest after having been elected by 12 of the 13 votes. Nehru gave Bharat Ratna to himself. Now following the traditions of his family, Pappu has declared himself to be PM candidate for 2019. What a great dy-nasty

    If this guy stands for elections, then the 2019 elections are decided.

    On a serious note. Modi needs to stop bashing the Congress when he goes abroad and addresses Indians. The chap needs to understand, that the country has to project a single image of the country. Nobody wants to listen to his election bhashan and how he is the single saviour of the country from the Congress. In the same way, RG needs to show maturity (if he wants to be seen as a real mature leader) to not take the bait and talk of a modern growing India, instead of bashing Modi abroad.

    Both the Congress and the BJP needs to show maturity while dealing with people outside the country.

    Strong opposition is required for strong democracy. That will not happen in 2019.

    Not exactly....IIP has dropped to 1.2% against (just) 4.2% last year. If Modi doesn't do something fast to fix the economy the elections might look a lot different than they do now.
