Manmohan Singh New Delhi, March 23 (IANS) Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Wednesday took potshots at octogenerian L.K. Advani, saying the former deputy prime minister has not forgiven him for becoming the prime minister which the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader thought was his birthright.

“Advaniji believes that prime ministership is his birthright. He has not forgiven me,” said Singh in his reply to the discussion on WikiLeaks revelation of US diplomatic cables on the cash-for-votes scandal of 2008.

Manmohan Singh asked Advani to wait for three more years to fulfil his dreams.

Advani had led his party in asking for the prime minister’s resignation after the leaked US diplomatic cables suggested that MPs may have been bribed for supporting the Manmohan Singh government.
