New Delhi/Kanpur, Sept 5 (ANI): Referring to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's apparent ambition to be the nation's next prime minister, Congress spokesperson Renuka Chowdhury said only time would tell who would be destroyed and who would succeed.
"It is just a matter of sometime. It will be seen who is thinking who would be destroyed and who would succeed," said Chowdhury.
BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi, however, described Modi as a man of stature.
"He is above all this. His motive is to serve the country and fight against corruption. The PM candidate is decided by the party and not by a member. Congress should first look at themselves and then talk," she said.
The Gujarat Chief Minister earlier in the day said his main priority at the moment is to serve the people of his state till 2017.
"We shouldn't dream about becoming something but doing something. I have been given a mandate till 2017 by people of Gujarat and will continue to serve you," Modi told a class10 boy in Gandhinagar, when asked if he would return soon to address the students as the Prime Minister.
Modi was addressing the students in Gandhinagar on the occasion of Teacher's Day.
Modi, who has been elevated as the BJP's poll panel chief, is considered by many to be the party's face for the next general elections.
Moreover, the BJP's Bihar unit on August 17 passed a unanimous resolution urging the party's parliamentary board to announce Narendra Modi as its Prime Ministerial candidate for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
The BJP has, however, not officially endorsed his candidature yet. (ANI)
