Chennai, Sept 10 :
All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary Rahul Gandhi stated the late chief minister Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy’s son Jaganmohan Reddy has all leadership qualities to become a chief minister of the state.
Talking to media persons in Chennai after completing his three days visit on Thursday, Rahul Gandhi said that he is not seeing Jaganmohan Reddy as Chief Minister’s son. Rahul said that he would not consider Jagan as an ordinary leader but he has many credits to his success in political career. He said that Jagan has occupied special position in the hearts of Andhra people, particularly in Rayalaseema region.
Rahul Gandhi said that the Congress High Command will take a positive decision on successor of chief minister in Andhra Pradesh very soon. He said that the high command is seeking more information from party leaders by summoning them to New Delhi.
As the decision is yet to be taken by high command, it is not right time to comment on the successor issue, he said. He assured the youth that there would be no place for money, power or influence in the Congress hereafter. Leaders would be elected from among the youth and anyone could contest organisational elections. Rahul underscored the need to harness the energy of the youth, and said the Youth Congress had embarked on such an endeavour.
