New Delhi: Sharing the views of senior
party colleagues Jaswant Singh and Rajnath Singh, actor-
politician Shatrughan Sinha on Saturday said LK Advani is the best
candidate for the post of Prime Minister from BJP.

"There cannot be two views about this...Advaniji is the
best candidate for the post of Prime Minister from BJP,"
Sinha, BJP MP from Patna Saheb said.
Two days back, Jaswant Singh had claimed that the
country was moving towards mid-term elections and there was no
dispute within the party on the leadership issue and L K
Advani was the unanimous choice for Prime Minister`s post.
Last week, Rajnath Singh had echoed similar views.

"Advaniji is experienced, mature and has good image
among people," Sinha said.

Though there are many suitable candidates for the PM
post from the party like Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley and
Yaswant Sinha, Advaniji is at present the best-suited
candidate for the post, he said.
Sinha said age is no problem for Advani for the PM
post.

"Even at 84 he (Advani) has more energy and stamina than
leaders in 40s and 50s," Sinha, popularly known as `Bihari
Babu`, said.

He described the veteran BJP leader as "friend,
philosopher and guide".
