BJP leader L K Advani has said "reputation" of the Prime Minister's post has "deteriorated" in recent years and claimed half a dozen aspirants for the coveted office have emerged from the ruling UPA itself during the current Lok Sabha polls.
Addressing an election rally here last night, Advani also continued his tirade against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh with whom he had a wordy duel after repeatedly taunting him as the weakest Prime Minister the country had ever seen.
"The President of Congress has become more powerful than the Prime Minister as 10, Janapath (where Sonia Gandhi resides) has been more powerful and important than 7, Race Course road (PM's residence)," Advani said.
The government has suffered its consequences in the last five years, the BJP prime ministerial candidate said, adding, similar situation should not continue and appealed to the voters to bring back NDA to power.
He said Rs 25,00,000 crore black money, which belonged to India and was stashed in foreign countries, would be brought back if NDA was voted to power.
NDA would also undertake several incomplete works including interlinking of all rivers as a solution to drinking water problem and drought and golden Quadrilateral Road Project aimed at linking all village to main roads, Advani said.
