With Rahul Gandhi unwilling to take up responsibility, and people unhappy with Manmohan Singh, Congress decided to field its star campaigner and key political strategist campaigner Digvijay Singh for the top leadership.
Other people in the race were ManishTewari,beacause of his intellectual and thougtful statements due to which he was considered as a heir to Digvijay Singh in the party and shri Kapil Sibal for his Zero theories, IT laws and handling of the education system but nobody enjoyed the charismatic appeal as shri Digvijay Singh. It’s reported that Rashid Alvi is unhappy as he was not even considered though he played the same role in the party.
There have been mixed reactions to this.
“This shows that ‘Don’t dare to think beyond Rahul Gandhi’ in the Congress party. The results could be catastrophic.” said Arindham Chaudhari as an expert panelist in the show of Arnab Goswami after hearing about all the options Congress had.
All other parties have decided not to field any candidate from the seat where Digvijayji will fight the lok sabha election.”If he becomes the PM, we will never seek his resignation nor we will disrupt the parlaiment”said a BJP leader to Faking News “It would be so much fun” he said. “The whole nation would like to see him in parlaiment again.” said the leader.
In response, BJP is planning to field Navjot Singh Sidhu as the PM candidate for 2014.
