United States finds Narendra Modi more potential for Prime Ministership than Rahul Gandhi

As the debate on potential Prime Ministerial contenders for the 2014 elections picks up in India, a US Congressional report said it might just turn out to be a direct contest between controversial Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.

A latest report on India by the United States finds Narendra Modi a strong prime ministerial candidate for the opposition BJP in 2014, while at the same time discussing the prospect of the Congress putting up Rahul Gandhi for the position. The report states, “Yet this heir-apparent remains dogged by questions about his abilities to lead the party, given a mixed record as an election strategist, uneasy style in public appearances, and reputation for gaffes.” On Narendra Modi, the report says “Among the party’s likely candidates for the prime ministership in future elections is Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, who has overseen impressive development successes in his state, but who is also dogged by controversy over his alleged complicity in lethal anti-Muslim rioting there in 2002.”
