Bhopal: Congress General Secretary Digvijay
Singh Friday said there was absolutely no truth in media reports saying that he had made up his mind to resign 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 reporters.
He said it would be really unwise of him to resign as the
in-charge of Uttar Pradesh particularly at a time when the
state was in the midst of an election campaign.

Two TV channels had yesterday carried news items saying
that 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 is contesting the
assembly polls from 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."
