In Britain, whose Constitution on parliamentary democracy was the model for India’s Constitution, voters don’t cast votes for political parties which do not declare the names of their prime ministerial candidates before the elections.  

Thus, by learning the names of potential prime ministerial candidates beforehand  (before they cast their votes), the British Voters make sure that they themselves (as voters) are able to evaluate the prime ministerial candidates (from various political parties) and vote in favor of the best and most effective Govt. leader (prime minister). This way the British voters  avoid the possibility that someone else (a person or a party) later, after getting their majority support in the parliamentary elections, might put someone through the backdoor, even as not elected to the House of Commons  (Lower House) and just a puppet or figurehead, in the prime minister’s chair.

Needless to say, it's really upto the citizens in the so-called parliamentary democracies to use the British example and cast votes in the parliamentary election for candidates belonging to only those parties which have finalized their choices for prime ministerial candidates before the election and announced their names to public beforehand.

Any proxy voting by people in the parliamentary election, leaving the choice of prime ministerial candidate to the party and party bosses after the election, is an invitation to turn the system into a “wishy-washy” parliamentary democracy in which the Head of Govt. (P.M.) selected and appointed by the party after the election might be just a figurehead or puppet of the party (including the special interest groups) and not even a member of the Lower House of Parliament (the House of Commons).

The British way of voting for parliamentary contenders (those vying for seats as M.P.s in the Lower House of Parliament or the House of Commons) from only those parties which have finalized and declared openly and publicly the names of their prime ministerial candidates before the parliamentary elections is the best way to minimize the impact of political dynasties and special interest groups on the selection of the Govt. leader (prime minister). Moreover, it gives ordinary people (voters) the chance to directly and properly scrutinize various prime ministerial candidates before they cast their votes in the general election in favour of the party which they think has the best and most effective potential prime minister (Govt. leader).

What Shehzada is saying is "where is the question/need for congress to announce a(ny) name for the PM post?"

In Britain, whose Constitution on parliamentary democracy was the model for India's present (post-Independence) Constitution, voters would not cast votes in the parliamentary election for candidates from any party which has not finalized and declared the name of its potential prime minister beforehand, because it (not knowing a party's potential prime minister's name beforehand)  would deny to voters  an opportunity to properly judge / evaluate that party’s potential prime minister and even compare him against other parties’ declared prime ministerial candidates before the election. This also saves public / voters the surprise and disappointment later in which they could end up with a totally unknown person (even a puppet / fighurehaed in the party) as their prime minister and who might not even be elected to the Lower House of Parliament (the House of Commons).
