Nagpur: Congress spokesperson and Rajya Sabha member MV Rajeev Gowda on Monday said that his party would project Rahul Gandhi as the prime ministerial candidate in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Gowda and AICC research wing coordinator Amol Deshmukh interacted with professionals, representatives of industry and civil society for over two hours in Nagpur on Monday and claimed that the Congress, with the help of its UPA allies, would regain power in the general elections. In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, the Congress had not formally projected any PM candidate.
“The people are fed up with jumlebaji of Narendra Modi government. It miserably failed to fulfil the election promises. The government failed on all fronts, particularly in creating new jobs and corruption is at its peak under the Modi government,” Gowda alleged.
