Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is a novice in public life and is hardly any match to BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal said on Wednesday.

The country's Prime Minister should be a "learned personality with varied administrative and public experience", he told reporters here.

"It is a fact that Rahul Gandhi lacks these. He is a novice in public life," Badal said after inaugurating an administrative complex.

It is not possible for such a person to shoulder the huge responsibility of serving the nation, he said.

"Modi has proved his mettle time and again as an able administrator by taking the state of Gujarat on the path to progress," Badal said.

Earlier addressing a public rally, the Chief Minister slammed Congress vice-president Rahul and party head Sonia Gandhi.

"The nation is facing external and internal crisis. But both Sonia Gandhi and Rahul are not even aware about the basic topography of the nation," he said.
