While some ambitious leaders might pose hurdles in Rahul Gandhi path to the prime ministership, there are others who are keen to back him and his big dream. Leaders who also have their eyes set on the most coveted post in India consider Rahul as their competitor and are consistently working on a strategy to push him to the margins in the grand alliance. However, at the same time, Rahul enjoys the support of regional stalwarts, who don’t dream big are not hesitant in supporting him as the next Prime Minister. The DMK’s Stalin has no desire to be a part of the politics of the Centre. He wants to become the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and has hence been supportive of Rahul’s PM candidature. Without thinking about any of the regional stalwarts, Stalin declared that Rahul Gandhi would become the PM candidate as he has the capability to stop the BJP. Even Tejashwi Yadav has no qualms about backing Rahul, neither does Akhilesh Yadav, who has on several occasions, given statements in Rahul’s favor. But it should be noted that this time, Akhilesh has a compulsion — Mayawati. She considers herself as a PM candidate and Akhilesh has to go with her in Uttar Pradesh. So, Akhilesh can’t declare Rahul as the PM candidate or he would face the wrath of Mayawati. That is why, perhaps, Akhilesh said that a decision will be taken after the results. Sharad Pawar is the only exception; he has big ambitions yet he is ready to accept Rahul Gandhi as his leader. He feels that it is better to have good relations with Rahul Gandhi and the Congress, so if the need arises, Rahul might propose his name for the PM’s post.
