Rahul Gandhi is not in PM race: Sharad Pawar

NCP supremo Sharad Pawar has been quoted as saying that Rahul Gandhi is not in a race to become the Prime Minister.  "He is working only to defeat Narendra Modi," the Maharashtra political heavyweight said.

As is known, NCP is in an alliance with Congress party.  "BJP and Modi always say that Rahul is an incapable leader.  If so, why do they speak about him so much?" Pawar asked in an interview.  

As per various surveys, the Congress-NCP alliance is not in a position to win even 10-12 seats in Maharashtra, which has got 48 seats in total.  The BJP-Shiv Sena alliance is on a strong wicket.
