Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu on Saturday came out in support of Rahul Gandhi days after a leader questioned the party's presidential election process.
Speaking to media, Sidhu said, "I have always been saying that Rahul Gandhi has a 'khandaani' (vast political) background. I believe that Rahul Gandhi has matured a lot and the time has come that the country is led by a 'khandaani' person like Rahul Gandhi."
Last week, Maharashtra Congress Secretary Shehzad Poonawalla claimed that the election was rigged and said it was merely a "selection" process.
On Gandhi's faith controversy, the Punjab's Local Bodies Minister said, "God is within each of us as we are a secular community. It is the spirit of the Constitution that there should be no discrimination on the basis of caste, colour and creed."
