Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, the Congress’ prime ministerial candidate in the Lok Sabha polls, said on Monday that Rahul Gandhi was fit for the country’s top job. His statement comes a day after Rahul’s sister Priyanka Vadra said she wanted her brother to become the prime minister one day.

“Power must pass on to young politicians and Rahul has all qualities and abilities to be the prime minister,” Singh said at a press conference during his one-day visit to Mumbai.

He also lambasted BJP’s PM-aspirant LK Advani, saying he had “the unique ability to combine strength in speech with weakness in action”.
