BJP's choice of PM candidate obvious: Rajnath

BJP President Rajnath Singh today appeared to bat for Gujrat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as the party's Prime Ministerial candidate and said it is now Congress' turn to make clear its choice of its candidate for the top post.

"Our choice of Prime Ministerial candidate is obvious and it is now the turn of Congress to make its choice clear", he said without naming Modi during a brief chat with mediapersons.
Accusing Congress of making baseless claims that 2002 Gujrat riots gave birth to Indian Mujahedeen, Rajnath Singh said "it’s all a gimmick to blame our leader and when anyone asks me to comment on it, I usually say that Congress has the bio-data of Indian Mujahedeen and we don’t have it".

Singh, who inaugurated a three-day training camp of Himachal Pradesh BJP workers, expressed grave concern over “crisis of credibility” of politicians and said the reason for this was "failure" of political parties to deliver and implement the promises made to the people.

He charged the UPA government with misgovernance and adopting ruinous policies, pushing the country to brink of bankruptcy and asked the party workers to ensure the return of BJP to power after 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

"The country is passing through a grave crisis and due to weak and inept leadership of UPA, not only a big country like China is making intrusions into the country at will but even small countries are trying to bully us", he said.
