Swaraj better than Modi: Digvijaya

New Delhi, Oct 27 (IANS) Congress leader Digvijaya Singh Sunday lashed out at Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi asking why can't a "better leader" like Sushma Swaraj be the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) prime ministerial candidate.

"And BJP wants Indian voters to vote for this Megalomaniac Psychopath Lier (sic)! Couldn't BJP find a better leader? What's wrong with Sushma?" Digvijaya Singh tweeted while reacting to Modi's comments that Jawaharlal Nehru did not attend Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel's funeral.

Swaraj, however, was quick to dismiss Digvijaya's comments with a retort: "Even I think Digvijaya Singhji is a better candidate than Rahul Gandhi."

This is not the first time that Digvijaya has called for Swaraj to be named BJP's prime ministerial candidate.

Last year as well, he said it was Swaraj's "right" to be seen as a contender for the prime minister's chair.
