Cong Dismisses Sinha's Modi as PM Candidate Idea
send via whatsapp
Congress was today dismissive of Yashwant Sinha's remarks pitching for Narendra Modi as BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate in next Lok Sabha elections, saying the eventuality does not arise as the Opposition party stands "not even a distant chance" to come to power.

Though terming it as "internal matter" of the BJP as to whom they make their PM candidate, party spokesperson Rashid Alvi said," Anyone from their party can become Prime Minister only when BJP gets that much strength in Parliament. And there is not even a distant possibility of that happening."

Sinha earlier said after careful thought he has concluded "that if BJP declares Modi as its PM candidate, then BJP will benefit hugely in the elections. It will have a big impact on voters. I have no doubt on this".

Sinha became the first senior BJP leader to openly pitch for declaring Modi as PM candidate although the party and the leaders have been evasive on the issue.

Modi, who held "elaborate" discussions with new BJP chief Rajnath Singh here yesterday on the 2014 elections, himself has been parrying the question.

 But your Sarkar is giving due recognition to the good work being done in Gujarat .
And you admit that Modi's success hurts a lot the UPA due its own failures to uplift rest of India .

" Gujarat’s good show in urban projects puts UPA in a spot

NEW DELHI: Gujarat's high rating in urban infrastructure development projects under the Centre's flagship JNNURM scheme seems to have become a new headache for the government at a time when UPA-2 would like to highlight its achievements before the next national polls.

So far, a majority of models suggested by the Union urban development (UD) ministry to state governments are from Gujarat, whether it's self-financing of a road project or intelligent traffic system for safe public transport.

In recent months, the UD ministry has issued four circulars on successful transport models which it recommended to state governments to adopt/emulate. The latest one was the Centre pushing the Surat model of developing an outer ring road without any government investment. Under this model, the project would generate about Rs 11,960 crore over five years against an investment of Rs 5,796 crore.

Earlier, the ministry had asked the states to follow the G-Auto model of Ahmedabad where a cluster of auto rickshaws is managed through a common control room. The advisory for states had come after the Nirbhaya gang rape incident. "There is no doubt that Gujarat has the best performance when it comes to urban infrastructure development and this cannot be ignored by anyone. So, there is nothing wrong if the Centre has asked others to learn and set such examples," said a ministry official.

However, for the Congress-led UPA, this is a sour pill to swallow and allow Narendra Modi's government to take the credit of successfully demonstrating best models of urban development. ""
