The BJP and Congress don’t see eye to eye on any policy. Narendra Modi the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate wants to rid the country of the Congress (and probably every opposition party). But yet there are two leaders in both parties who believe of each other as an ideal Prime Ministerial candidate. Sushma Swaraj and Digvijaya Singh.
While Digvijay makes no qualms about showing his dislike for the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate, it’s no secret that Sushma Swaraj and Mr Modi aren’t friends either.
Months ago, in October, Sushma Swaraj had tweeted saying that she felt Digvijay Singh is a better candidate than Rahul.
Even I think Digvijay Singh ji is a better candidate than Rahul Gandhi. @digvijaya_28

Today, Digvijay returned the favour saying Sushma Swaraj would make for a much better prime minister rather Narendra Modi. He was quoted saying, “Sushma is acceptable like Atal Bihari Vajpayee. It’s now no BJP only Modi.”
While there are some rumours that Digvijay Singh may contest the Varanasi Lok Sabha seat against Modi on behalf of the Congress, the party has not yet disclosed any details. It is believed that the Congress is waiting to see if Arvind Kejriwal of the AAP will indeed stand for elections from there.
