We can’t spare Dr. Manmohan Singh: Congress

New Delhi: The Congress could not spare Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, the party said Thursday, ruling out his candidature as president.

“Dr. Manmohan Singh will stay prime minister till 2014,” said Janardhan Dwivedi, Congress leader.

He further added, “We cannot afford to spare Dr. Manmohan Singh.”

Plus, it was the first comment of the party since Trinamool Congress’ Mamata Banerjee and Samajwadi Party’s Mulayam Singh Yadav Wednesday listed Manmohan Singh as one of their preferred choices for the president’s post.
