Bhopal: Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Wednesday said he was trying his best to bring about a rapprochement between various factions in the party ahead of next month's civic elections in Madhya Pradesh.

"I have been working for this rapprochement ever since I came here on Monday morning," Singh said.

The former Chief Minister said he was to be in New Delhi today, but stayed back here to help bring about unity in the party for the civic elections.

Asked if his attempts had met with success, Singh said right now he was fighting in the dark and added that the results would be known when the list of candidates for the elections is finally announced.

Tomorrow was the last date for filing nominations although the symbol allotment can be done till November 30.

Singh said all the problems regarding the civic polls in the Gwalior and Morena divisions have been sorted out but he was still holding discussions with his party colleague and Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia for any pending issue.

Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh Congress President Suresh Pachouri today called on Singh at his residence here and the two are believed to have discussed the party's strategy for civic elections.
