The Congress has not named a prime ministerial candidate because it fears losing the coming Lok Sabha election, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said Sunday.

"We have declared that we will be fighting the election under the leadership of (Narendra) Modiji as he is our PM candidate but the Congress is avoiding naming their candidate because it fears losing the election," party leader Sushma Swaraj told the party's national council meet.

The Congress has said that vice president Rahul Gandhi won't be the prime ministerial candidate but lead the party's election campaign in the Lok Sabha election.

Sushma Swaraj wanted to know why did Prime Minister Manmohan Singh say it would be good if Rahul Gandhi leads the nation if the Congress does not believe in naming a prime ministerial candidate.
