New Delhi, March 05:

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said he was not interested in becoming the prime minister and wants to focus on his party instead.

"The party is my priority. I believe in long--term politics," Gandhi was quoted by TV channels as saying in Delhi.

"I am not interested in becoming the prime minister," he was quoted as saying.

Gandhi, who is the second-in-command in the Congress, told reporters there was a need to end the "high command culture" in the party.

The Congress party has not announced a prime ministerial candidate for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, but Gandhi is a clear favourite.

Gandhi has been working on improving the party''s grasroots and has convened a meeting of all general secretaries and central leaders in charge of states on March 6. (ANI)
