Always welcomed Rahul entry into govt: PM

New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today said he would welcome Rahul Gandhi`s entry into the government, remarks that come in the context of raging speculation over the possibility of a larger role for him in the government and the Congress.

"I have always said I would welcome Rahul`s entry into government," Singh told reporters here.

Last month, Rahul had said that he would play a more proactive role in the Congress and the government, the timing of which would be decided by his two bosses Congress President Sonia Gandhi and the Prime Minister.

Asked about possibility of a reshuffle of the Cabinet next month, the Prime Minister said, "You will come to know when it happens."
