Rahul not accepted as PM candidate by alliance leaders: Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said in Theni that AICC President Rahul Gandhi is not acceptable as a Prime Ministerial candidate by his own alliance leaders as all of them aspire for the post.

Addressing an election rally here as part of the AIADMK-BJP led front, he said some days ago DMK President M K Stalin projected the “Naamdaar” as Prime Minister. ''But, no one was ready to accept it. Not even their “Maha Milawati” friends, because they all want to be Prime Minister'', he added.

Stating that the Congress, DMK and their other Maha Milawati friends could never work for India’s development, Mr Modi had a dig at former Union Minister P Chidambaram and said ''what all have we been witness to is “father become the Finance Minister and son (Karti Chidambaram) loots the country.''

''Whenever they are in government, they always loot'', he charged. “All the corrupt have ganged up in an attempt to defeat me,” he said.
