Political parties need to stop debating about next PM: Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi: Political parties need to address issues concerning ordinary people instead of constantly debating about the next prime minister, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said Friday.
"How does it matter who becomes the prime minister?" the Aam Aadmi Party leader told the media.
Kejriwal`s comments came shortly after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh declared he won`t seek a third term and that Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi was a fit candidate for the country`s top job.
"The government has increased the price of (cooking gas) cylinder by Rs 220. How will the poor survive?
"They (political parties) do not address these issues but spend the entire day talking about who will be the prime minister of the country."
