In an interview given to a prominent Hindi daily, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday stated that “he is ready to take charge”, hinting that he is open to the prime minister’s position as his party is expected to announce his name for the most powerful seat in the country at a meeting on January 17.

There was speculation that the Nehru Gandhi scion was hesitant to take up the responsibility.

"I am a sepoy of the Congress. I will obey whatever order is given to me. I will do whatever the Congress wants me to do,” Rahul said in the interview, adding, “Power is poison, but that does not mean that I am not keen to take responsibility. There is no reluctance in my life. Whatever task the Congress wanted me to accomplish, I have done that”.

During the course of the interview he also attacked BJP’s PM candidate Narendra Modi as he said, “"The BJP today wants a personality-oriented rule, which is not in the interests of the country. The country should not be governed according to the thinking of a particular person and his ways. The future of 120 crore people can be shaped up and improved only by taking everybody along”.

However, the impact of Rahul Gandhi’s latest move cannot be assessed until we get to know how the people of India will react to his interview. To get a sense of that we request our dear readers to cast their votes in a poll. (Click NEXT for Question 2)
