Manish Tewari derides BJP, Rajnath Singh over PM candidate

Monday, Yashwant Sinha went public demanding that Gujarat chief minister be declared the party's PM candidate

Kavita Chowdhury  |  New Delhi 

I & B minister and Congress leader has derided chief Rajnath Singh’s feeble attempts to prevent his party colleagues from voicing their opinions on the BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate. The growing chorus by several leaders to name as chief minister has drawn a lot of flak for the from its NDA allies. Taking a dig at Tewari tweeted that “such home remedies cannot treat chronic delusionites.”

Ridiculing the partyleaders as "chronic delusionites", Tewari tweeted, “Even Rajnath Singhji's home remedies can't treat the chronic delusionites his esteemed colleagues suffer from. Fantansyland is addictive place.”

Yesterday, a desperate had virtually issued a gag order to party men after Yashwant Sinha went public demanding that the Gujarat chief minister be declared the party’s ahead of the polls. This threatened to snowball into a gigantic controversy when ally JD(U) expressed its reservations and chief minister Nitish Kumar a known Modi baiter asked the to come clean on its stand.  

While this spurred to swing into damage control and issue the gag order;

“I want to humbly appeal to workers and leaders that there should be no statement from them on who will be the candidate for the Prime Minister's post. As I have said earlier, the convention is that any decision on the chief ministerial or prime ministerial candidate is taken by the Central Parliamentary Board.” Despite this soon senior leaders CP Thakur and Shatrughan Sinha defied him reiterating the demand for Modi as PM.

CP Thakur went on record to say, “The will gain (by declaring Modi the candidate). By declaring him (Modi) the candidate will certainly gain because of many factors... There is a feeling among the people that he should be the candidate.” Shatrughan Sinha also chipped in saying he supports senior leader Yashwant Sinha.

Congress leaders meanwhile are observing these antics within the for the Prime Minister’s post with much amusement.
