Sirsa: Trying to maximize the party`s poll
prospects, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Saturday met
Dera Sachha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh here, who has
a sizable following in western part of UP.

Digvijay held parleys with the Dera chief yesterday
inside his premises, sources said today.

The Congress leader came in a chopper and went straight
to Dera chief`s cave. He flew back to Allahabad after the
meet, sources said.

However, sources close to Digvijay said that he was here
"merely" on a religious trip to seek the blessings of the Dera
chief.

The Sikh sect, which has reportedly about 35 lakh
devotees in Punjab, also has a large following in western
parts of UP.

The sect had backed the Congress in last assembly
elections in Punjab, but it remained tight-lipped on
supporting any party in the January 30 polls of the state.
