    NEW DELHI, April 25 (Xinhua) -- India's Nehru-Gandhi scion Rahul Gandhi Saturday declined to becoming the prime minister of India, saying that he is not ready to hold the highest executive post in the country.

    "I would refuse (the prime minister seat). I do not think I have the experience to be the prime minister of the country right now," Gandhi said at a press briefing in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata.

    The 39-year-old grand-son of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, was responding to a question whether he would like to become prime minister in future.

    The Congress party has nominated incumbent 75-year-old prime minister, Manmohan Singh, as the prime ministerial candidate in the on-going general elections.
