Patiala: The BJP has said that Congress is reluctant to declare Rahul Gandhi as its prime ministerial candidate because he has failed to connect with masses.
BJP leader Balbir Punj said that today Congress is facing a leadership crisis.
“Manmohan Singh has been disowned by his own party. And the Congress does not have the courage to project Rahul Gandhi as its prime ministerial candidate because of his failure to connect with the masses,” Punj told media here.
He alleged that when Rahul publicly tore the ordinance on convicted politicians, approved by the Cabinet, it was a clear rebuff to Singh and the Parliamentary form of Government.
The BJP leader claimed it was clear that in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, Singh will no longer be the prime ministerial face of the Congress.
