Former advisor to then BJP president Nitin Gadkari and aide to party patriarch Lal Krishna Advani, Sudheendra Kulkarni has praised new Congress President Rahul Gandhi and said the leader is fit to be the next Prime Minister of India.

Soon after Rahul Gandhi’s elevation as Congress President, Kulkarni said that India needed a leader like Rahul Gandhi with truly Gandhian philosophy of politics.

He also said that Rahul should become India’s next Prime Minister.

“A new leader is born. A leader India needs. A leader with a new- truly Gandhian- philosophy of politics. Politics of idealism, of love, of service, of inclusion, of dialogue. Today I’m even more convinced:#CongressPresidentRahulGandhi will, and should, become India’s next PM,” Kulkarni tweeted.

Speaking about Sonia Gandhi, Kulkarni said, she is a “woman of Courage” for leading Congress party for 19 years despite all the odds.

“#SoniaGandhi, a Woman of Courage. One who overcame impossible odds to lead the #Congress for 19 long years. Her speech today touched millions of hearts. It speaks to the greatness of Indian culture and Indian democracy that Indian people accepted her as their own. #Salute,” Kulkarni tweeted further.

Rahul Gandhi on Saturday took over as the 16th President of the Congress from his mother Sonia Gandhi who had been leading the Grand-Old Party for 19 years.

Rahul took the charge at a ceremony held at the lawns of the party’s 24 Akbar Road headquarters in Delhi.
