Projecting Modi as next PM was a mistake

By Super Admin

New Delhi: Post-election post-mortem has begun. BJP leader and Pioneer editor Chandan Mitra today said that projecting Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as the party's next prime ministerial candidate was a blunter, indicating that it could be a factor in the party's poor show in elections.

"Bringing up Narendra Modi's name in the middle of the campaign was a serious error of judgement," BJP leader Chandan Mitra said analysing the election results on CNN-IBN.

The comments in connection with Modi were personal opinion of a senior leader and were seen as the feeling of the party.

"It was a mistake, though every attempt was made to cover it up," Mitra said.

BJP leader Arun Shourie had put forward Modi's name as a possible prime ministerial candidate in the 2014 elections, a view which was supported by several party leaders.
