"Will the Congress dare announce who will be the prime ministerial candidate before the general elections?" he said addressing members of the India-America Chamber of Commerce.

Claiming that there are too many contenders for the job in the Congress Party – Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Manmohan Singh, P Chidambaram and other unnamed dark horses, Singh said, “Congress leaders and workers are confused as to who would be the next Prime Minister if their party returns to power.”

He said his party followed democratic principles in the selection of campaign committee chief and there was consensus unlike in the dictatorial Congress party. "Did we have any problem when we named senior leader LK Advani as Prime Minister Candidate in 2009 and did we had any issues when Atalji was made Prime Minister in 1999. Congress is now trying to divert the attention of the people from its scams and failures," he said.
