Manmohan Singh my political guru, says Rahul Gandhi

Sangrur, Oct 10 (IANS) Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi Thursday heaped praise on the prime minister, saying he was his political guru and no one could match the development work done by Manmohan Singh.

"I have two political gurus, Congress president Sonia Gandhi and the prime minister," Gandhi said while addressing a rally in this Punjab town.

"No one else has done so much development work as done by the prime minister," he said.

He thanked the people of Punjab for "giving us the prime minister".
