British Foreign Secretary David Miliband on Wednesday night skilfully ducked a question on Rahul Gandhi's potential to become the country's prime minister saying it was very important in politics to "focus on the current job rather than the next job."

Milband(43) however said Rahul had a "wide range of qualities" for which he had "high regards."

Miliband, who is on a visit to the Congress general secretary's parliamentary constituency here for a first-hand account of the development activities, was asked whether he thought the scion of the Nehru-Gandhi family could emerge as the country's prime minister.

"It is very important in politics to focus on the current job rather than the next job," said a smiling Miliband, who is considered a prime ministerial potential in the U.K.
