"He (Singh) spoke about the high credentials of Rahul Gandhi. It would have been better, if he has explained what are the high credentials, except the qualification of dynasty," Venkaiah said.

Making light of the Prime Minister's comments ruling himself out of another term at the office, the BJP leader said people of the country would retire Congress in coming elections.

"The announcement of retirement made by Dr Manmohan Singh was not needed because people have already decided about the retirement of the Congress party. The message from five state elections was loud and clear," he said.

Taking exception to Singh's comment that BJP's PM candidate Narendra Modi would be a disaster for the country, Venkaiah said, "Yes, Narendra Modi will be a disaster to the Congress party. Manmohan Singh will be judged as the most ineffective, weak and meek PM of the most corrupt government, who pushed India into dark in every sense.”

The Manmohan Singh-led Congress regime has been marked by low growth rate, high inflation, low foreign exchange reserves and poor show in manufacturing, agriculture, employment generation and hostilities with neighbouring countries, he alleged.

Venkaiah said Modi has emerged as the darling of the masses as people feel he is decisive, dynamic and development-oriented.
