New Delhi: Congress ruled out change of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the run up to next Lok Sabha elections but steered clear of questions whether he would again be at the helm if the UPA-III comes to power.

In reply to questions about change of the Prime Minister soon and holding of early Lok Sabha elections, Congress spokesman PC Chacko said, “Please do not think of a change of the Prime Minister....We have a strong Prime Minister.”

"We have the time. Elections are far away. The question of leadership is not with us,” he said.

"Holding of early elections is out of question. Government is in a comfortable position. No plan for early elections. We have an agenda to implement", he said.

With the ninth anniversary of UPA scheduled on May 22, Chacko highlighted the achievements of the coalition in various sectors and targeted the opposition for having "obstruction as the only slogan" in the pro-people legislative agenda of the government.
