Amid speculation over Rahul Gandhi’s elevation, a senior congress leader and former union minister Mani Shankar Aiyar on Sunday predicted that the Congress would win the next elections and Gandhi would be the next Prime Minister.

“Congress will win the next Lok Sabha elections and Rahul Gandhi will become the next Prime Minister,” he told reporters here.

On the Congress Vice-President dubbing the Narendra Modi dispensation as ‘suit-boot ki sarkar’ in Parliament, Aiyar alleged that the Modi government was for moneyed people.

On the fishermen problem, he said it is a national issue and the External Affairs Ministry should hold talks with Sri Lanka and the problem would be solved.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said in Parliament that the fishermen problem would be solved through talks “but there is no concrete action,” he told reporters here.

On Karnataka’s plan for construction of reservoir over Cauvery river at Mekedatu over which Opposition parties in Tamil Nadu have sought Modi’s intervention, he said the Prime Minister was maintaining silence on the matter. “It is not correct.”

                      No need to take Mani's word seriously. The country would be better off without him.

                          Mani Shankar Aiyer needs treatment in a Mental Asylum. This Lap Dog of hi family does not know what he speaks.He only knows how to pour venom on Narendra Modi and BJP on every trivial reason.Best is to ignore such stupid people.Let them howl.

                              He was earlier predicting that Sonia will continue to be the congress president, now feeling the change in the mood he has now started playing a different tune saying Rahul will be the new President and future PM.Now most of the so called old guards who were batting for Sonia these days are now changing their colours slowly to suit the occasions.Actually all these trumpet blowing by Rahul now is nothing but to unnerve the old guards in the congress party and to fall in line.

                                And then hope and wish there will be an Iyyer cabinet minister ! He is one of the many bureaucrat turned politician having no sense of the pulse of common man. If Rahul happen to become the next PM of a congress party some time in 2025 then all these senior people will become irrelevant.
