BJP should project Manohar Parrikar as PM candidate: Aam Aadmi Party

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today said BJP should project Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar as its prime ministerial candidate instead of its present nominee Narendra Modi.

"If BJP wants to correct its mistake (of projecting Modi) then it should project Parrikar in place of Modi as its prime ministerial candidate," AAP national executive member Dinesh Vaghela told reporters here.

He said Modi during his rally yesterday in Goa had praised Parrikar for his simplicity and performance.

Reacting to the assurances doled out by Modi during the rally, Vaghela said the BJP leader was making fake promises of prosperity. The BJP and Congress are two sides of the same coin and both the parties don't want corruption to be weeded out, he said.

There are several BJP leaders who are indicted for corruption but still continue to lead the party, Vaghela pointed out.
