Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram said it's not decided yet that the Congress chief Rahul Gandhi will be declared as Prime Minister candidate in upcoming general elections or not. He stated that right now the main objective is to change the BJP regime in the country. Chidambaram said that they have not officially declared Rahul Gandhi as its PM candidate.

Chidambaram said in an interview which he gave to a Tamil News channel, the party has made no official declaration but on the contrary, when asked about it, the All India Congress Committee (AICC) has denied and has also asked people not to talk about it.

On the issue of Prime Ministerial candidate, former Finance minister said it was not an issue for the Congress party. He added Neither Congress nor the Congress chief made any statement about bringing a person as prime minister. He further said that once the alliance has won the election, it is then that the alliance partners will sit and decide the Prime Minister.

The attack on BJP continues by the Congress, they said that their main focus is to remove the Bharatiya Janata Party. Congress said they wish to bring in a government that will not take away human rights, or threaten people and does not indulge in tax terrorism against traders and entrepreneurs.  Their plan is to give security to women and children and also give a fair and remunerative price to farmers for the farm produce and to farm workers.
