The Congress isn't getting much time to lick the wound of the Time magazine cover story that declares the Prime Minister is an underachiever. Senior party leader and Law Minister Salman Khurshid has made remarks to a newspaper that appear to criticize Rahul Gandhi, who he describes as "the number two" in the Congress party. Mr Khurshid, however, said today that his remarks to the Indian Express have been misinterpreted and "my urging of young and new leadership of our party to prepare themselves to lead from the front, to prepare themselves to take on the challenge of our times is something you must see in the right context rather than in the negative context."
