PM has shown his ‘true political colours’: BJP

With Prime Minister Manmohan Singh apparently not ruling himself out for a third term in the top post, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday attacked the Prime Minister and said that he was shown his true colours. ‘Obviously, Manmohan Singh, the reluctant politician, has shown his true colours a few days after Holi and has indicated that he is audaciously ambitious,’ said BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad.

Singh, in his interaction with the media on his return home from the BRICS summit in Durban yesterday, appeared not to rule out another term for himself as Prime Minister. BJP maintained that the functioning of Singh as Prime Minister in the last nine years is certainly a matter of public concern and pointed out that several scams and ‘monumental corruption’ have taken place with alarming regularity during his rule.

‘The lacklustre, non-performing leadership of Manmohan Singh, involved in so many massive scams, some of which lead directly to his door steps, is not what the people of the country want or deserve and that too for a third term. India certainly deserves better and Indians are waiting for the opportunity to make it happen,’ said Prasad.

The principal opposition also took potshots at Singh and the Congress party on the issue of Prime Ministership. ‘Whether the comment of Manmohan Singh is more aimed at his foes in Congress or to put a question mark on Rahul Gandhis claim for the post of Prime Minister, for which a consistent chorus is going on within Congress, is entirely the internal matter of Congress,’ said Prasad.
