Digvijay denies quitting as UP poll in-charge
Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh dismissed as "baseless" media reports which claimed he had decided to step down as UP party in-charge.
Bhopal: Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Friday dismissed as "baseless" media reports which claimed he had decided to step down as party in-charge of poll-bound Uttar Pradesh.
"I just do not know from where and how the media manages
to get such totally baseless and false stories about me,"
Singh told agency.
He said it would be unwise for him to resign as the
in-charge of Uttar Pradesh, particularly at a time when the
state was in the midst of intense campaigning.
Two TV channels had yesterday carried news items saying
Singh has decided to quit as the UP in-charge.
Asked to comment on the prospects of former Madhya
Pradesh Chief Minister Uma Bharti, who recently entered the
electoral fray in Uttar Pradesh, the senior Congress leader
said, "We do not have to do anything. The UP BJP will itself
ensure that Bharti does not win."
