"Current Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's rule will be known for only scams, he added."
Patna, April 14 - Senior BJP leader L K Advani Monday held that Atal Bihari Vajpayee's six years as prime minister were better for India's development than the long rule of Congress' prime ministers Jawaharal Nehru and Indira Gandhi

Vajpayee's tenure as PM was best ever, Advani said addressing election meetings in Bihar's Banka and Katihar parliamentary constituencies.

Visiting Bihar for the first time to campaign for BJP candidates during ongoing Lok Sabha polls, he did not directly target Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar

Advani claimed that Nehru and Indira Gandhi developed the country at a cost. During Nehru's rule, his biggest failing was defeat at the hands of China in the 1962 war and the Emergency imposed by Indira Gandhi was a historic blunder.

Current Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's rule will be known for only scams, he added.

After Modi and party president Rajnath Singh, Advani is the third star campaigner of BJP to campaign in Bihar for the polls.
