Sonia Gandhi says ‘I knew Manmohan would be better PM than me’


Mumbai(Wishav Warta): Congress leader Sonia Gandhi today spoke on a wide range of topics, including her children, her own shortcomings and the role of democracy in India, the first time she has opened up since relinquishing the party president post.

Addressing a gathering Gandhi said democracy allows dissent and debate and not monologues in an apparent barb at Prime Minister Narendra Modi. She also lamented that nation builders are being slandered and that there was cynical running down of past achievements referring to the constant criticism by the ruling party of the post Independence achievements of the Congress and its prime ministers.

Speaking about her own role in leadership after Congress came to power in 2004, she said that she knew Manmohan Singh would be a better prime minister than her, and that she was aware of her limitations.
