“Unlike Modi, Sushma Swaraj has an image of a moderate leader. She had begun her political career with the JP movement at a time when she was a student leader but had later on drifted towards the BJP,” he said.
Digvijay further said Sushma would be "more acceptable to allies" of the BJP in the NDA in the same way that Atal Bihari Vajpayee was.
"Sushma has conducted herself as the Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha in a very dignified manner, although it was under her leadership that the Lower House of Parliament had faced maximum number of disruptions," he said.
She made many promises to the people of Vidisha before the 2009 Lok Sabha elections but has not fulfilled most of them, Digvijay alleged.
The senior BJP leader also adopted two villages in each Assembly segment of the constituency which had given her maximum votes, but their condition was now pitiable, he said.
Sushma would this time be defeated from Vidisha as she has done nothing for the constituency in the last five years, he claimed.
The downfall of the BJP has begun and only Narendra Modi is left in the party, he said.
"I say that Sushma would be a much better Prime Minister than Modi due to a number of reasons," Singh told reporters at his residence here.
