Manmohan Singh young, looks at the future: Rahul GandhiApril 13th, 2009 - 3:34 pm ICT by IANS
Kochi, April 13 (IANS) Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi Monday said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was youthful and had the vision for the future unlike his opponent who lived in the past without a plan for the years to come.
“A young person looks to the future, the old looks to the past. My prime minister, your prime minister, our prime minister looks into the future. When he did reform in 1991, he looked 20-30 years ahead. If you sit with him, he will start telling you one, two, three, four, five, six, seven his plans,” Gandhi told reporters here.
Without naming the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) prime ministerial candidate L.K. Advani, Gandhi said: “His opposition is a person of the past. He looks at 2009 to 2004. They only speak of what we did. There is no statement coming there about the next five years… what they intend to do, 1, 2, 3.”
