People won't like to see Singh again: BJP

New Delhi, Mar 29 : India's main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday attacked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and said the country will not like to see him serving the post for another five years.

"There is no probability that the people of this country would like to see him as the Prime Minister for another five-year term....The nation is now fed up of the rampant inflation, corruption and policy paralysis," BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said while addressing a press conference on Friday.

Reacting to Singh's remark on third term as Prime Minister, Prasad said: "Dr. Manmohan Singh is a very reluctant politician. But what is surprising is few days after Holi, the reluctant politician has shown his true political colours and that too being audaciously ambitious."

While replying to a question on whether he would accept nomination for a third term as prime minister, Singh on Thursday said: "These are hypothetical questions. We will cross that bridge when we reach there."

Singh made the remark during his media interaction on board the Air India One while returning from the BRICS Summit at Durban city in South Africa.
