Prime Minister Manomohan Singh may announce his resignation from the post in a press conference on January 3, as reported by English daily Telegraph. However, the sources with in the PMO, as referred by the various news channels, have declined such reports as mere speculations.

The Telegraph report says that the Congress may appoint Rahul Gandhi after Manmohan Singh's resignation. The resignation talks are the result of humiliating defeat being faced by the party in the just concluded Assembly elections.

The PMO office sources have said that before the elections there would be no such major change in the government.

During the presser the PM may also suggest that he will be available to groom and guide Rahul Gandhi.
