Not in the race for CM’s post: Supriya Sule

supriya suleMumbai: NCP leader and MP Supriya Sule today said she was not in the race for the post of Maharashtra Chief Minister.

“I am not contesting the assembly elections and am not in the race for the Chief Minister’s post,” Sule said in an interaction at an event organised by a channel.

She downplayed a question about why a progressive state like Maharashtra hasn’t had a woman chief minister so far.

“That has nothing to do with working for women-related issues and their uplift. Domestic violence and dowry deaths will not stop if a woman becomes CM,” she said.

To a question about Rahul Gandhi, Sule said the Congress vice president was a simple, well-spoken and good-natured person. “He must have done well in his constituency, that’s why he was elected with a margin of two lakh votes,” she said.

But asked about Rahul’s leadership qualities, she said it was Congress’ internal matter. “Even I have lot of drawbacks, who am I to comment on others’ flaws? Everyone has his or her own style and personality,” she said.

“It’s not NCP’s but Congress’ job to think about Rahul Gandhi’s political credibility. NCP has just an alliance relationship with the Congress,” she added.

On Narendra Modi, Sule said, “Narendra Modi is very good man, he is our Prime-Minister and we respect him. The country has given him a good mandate so he should be given a little time.”
