Advani is BJP choice for PM: Jaswant Singh
New Delhi: Claiming that the country is
moving towards mid-term elections, BJP leader Jaswant Singh
today said there is no dispute within the party on the
leadership issue and LK Advani is the unanimous choice for
Prime Minister`s post.
Asked if BJP has been able to present itself as an
alternative, Singh said, "Definitely, BJP is the
choice of the people. And as far as the question of leadership
in the party is concerned, Advani is our topmost leader...
There is neither any doubt nor any dispute on this issue."
On his choice for Prime Minister in the party, he said,
"My choice is Advani."
In reply to a question on the issue of his not enjoying
the same stature after his return to the party as he did
before, he said, "I have nothing to do with this. I was
invited to the party. I came back on the invitation of Advani
and (party president) Gadkari. This was not a give-and-take
Singh expressed concern over the current political
situation in the country.
"It is the government`s functioning that creates
issues. In this scenario, the kind of political landscape that
is emerging is extremely sad. The anger of the people due to
government`s inactivity and corruption is boiling over," Singh
said claiming that the "country is headed for mid-term polls."
The BJP MP maintained that such a situation had not
emerged ever in the country in the last 60 years.
