After his controversial comments about imposition of President's rule in Uttar Pradesh, Union Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal on Saturday created a flutter when he said that Rahul Gandhi could become the prime minister "even at midnight if he so desires".

"Rahul Gandhi can become the prime minister at 12 tonight and no one can stop that from happening. But neither does he want to become the prime minister nor the chief minister," he said addressing a public rally at Mathura.

Jaiswal, who has expressed readiness to become the chief minister if the high command so wanted, today also assured people of the area that he will give them the "the best ministry Mathura ever had" if they ensured the win of the party candidate.

Jaiswal had triggered a controversy a couple of days by his remarks that Gandhi would be the remote control, whoever becomes the chief minister of the Congress in UP.

On Saturday, the Election Commission had held prima facie his comments on imposition of the president's rule in UP a threat to voters and violation of model code of conduct and slapped a show cause notice on him.
