"Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is a member of the Congress party. Sonia Gandhi is its president and Rahul Gandhi is the vice-president.

"Somebody may ask why are you saying this when PM is from the rival party? We want to tell them that the Prime Minister dosen't belong to any party, he is the leader of the nation. When he is visiting a foreign country he is representing the entire nation," he said.
