Bhopal: Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh today said Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha, Sushma Swaraj would be a much better Prime Minister than Narendra Modi, the official nominee of BJP for the top post.
“I say that Sushma would be a much better Prime Minister than Modi due to a number of reasons,” Singh told reporters at his residence here.
Unlike Modi, Sushma Swaraj has an image of a moderate leader. She had begun her political career with the JP movement at a time when she was a student leader but had later on drifted towards the BJP, he said.
Sushma would be “more acceptable to allies” of the BJP in the NDA in the same way that (former Prime Minister) Atal Bihari Vajpayee was, the Congress leader expressed.
“Sushma has conducted herself as the Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha in a very dignified manner, although it was under her leadership that the Lower House of Parliament had faced maximum number of disruptions,” he said, adding that he did not agree with her on many issues raised by her in the Lok Sabha.
