Congress leader in AP claims Rahul Gandhi will be next PM

Tirupati: AICC secretary C D Meyyappan said Congress president Rahul Gandhi would become the next Prime Minister and the party would get more than 170 Lok Sabha seats in the elections this year.

Congress would form the next government with the support of like-minded opposition parties, he further claimed.

The BJP government led by Narendra Modi has failed to deliver on its promises made to the people said Meyyappan, who is in-charge of party affairs in Andhra Pradesh.

A Sai Pratap, a six-time MP from Rajampet in Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh who quit the Congress five years ago, returned to the party-fold Thursday. Sai Prataps homecoming took place in his presence and AP State Congress President Raghuveera Reddy in Kadapa, said Meyyappan.
