Advani challenges Manmohan Singh to a live TV debateMarch 26th, 2009 - 10:51 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Mar 26 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP’s) prime ministerial candidate Lal Krishna Advani on Thursday challenged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to a live television debate.
“I am ready for a live TV debate as is the norm in the United States,” Advani told reporters here.
Earlier in the day, Advani said Manmohan Singh should contest and win the Lok Sabha election instead of taking the Rajya Sabha route.
“It is good that the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) chairperson Sonia Gandhi has finally announced its prospective Prime Minister’s name. But the PM should contest the elections instead of taking the Rajya Sabha route,” he added.
His comments came two days after Manmohan Singh cleared that he had no intention to contest the Lok Sabha polls. (ANI)
