With speculation about a move to make Rahul Gandhi the working president of the Congress party, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday said that if he was given any other responsibility, he will welcome it.

"It's a question of the party. I have requested him many a time to come to cabinet meetings," Singh told reporters on board his special aircraft while returning from the Saarc summit held in the Maldives.

He was responding to a question on whether he supported the move by some to make Rahul Gandhi the working president of the Congress party.

"If Rahul is given a larger responsibility, I will welcome it," Manmohan Singh said.
