Rahul Gandhi has all qualities to make an excellent PM: Shashi Tharoor

Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor believes that party president Rahul Gandhi has all the right qualities to make an “excellent” prime minister. “At a personal level, having had several interactions and discussions in close quarters with the Congress president, to my mind it is evidently clear that Rahul ji has all the right qualities to make an excellent prime minister for the country,” Tharoor said in an interview to PTI. Advertising Tharoor, however, emphasised that the issue of PM candidate is likely to be decided after the 2019 polls “collectively” by the party and its allies. When asked about Gandhi seemingly emerging as the opposition’s PM face despite the allies saying that a decision on it will be taken after polls, Tharoor said, “Rahul Gandhi is our leader, which means that if Congress gets a majority, he will be PM. If Congress is in a coalition government, obviously wider discussions will be held with other coalition partners to arrive at a consensus candidate.” source:indianexpress

Deve Gowda: Violation of coalition ‘dharma’ will spell doom for Congress-JD(S) govt in Karnataka

JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda Sunday said violation of coalition “dharma” by any one of the partners would only spell disaster for the Congress-JD(S) government in Karnataka as it would benefit the communal forces in the state. Advertising “If anybody thinks he is superior and thinks of dominating the coalition partner, and also violates the coalition dharma, that ultimately is going to be disastrous, because it will benefit the communal forces in Karnataka,” the former prime minister told PTI in an interview here. To keep the communal forces at bay, he said, both the Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular) were working on a formula for the smooth functioning of the coalition government.
