New Delhi: Congress leader Digvijay Singh
has termed as "outrageous" Mayawati`s statement that his party
wants to install him as UP Chief Minister, saying she is
feeling "rattled" and "threatened" by it.

"I don`t have a vote in UP. How can I when I am not even
a voter in UP? She is now strongly rattled and feeling
threatened by Congress.... Mayavati made an outrageous
statement that I may (be) in the run for CM UP," Singh
commented on the micro blogging site Twitter.

His reaction comes a day after the UP Chief Minister
while addressing a `Brahmin Bhaichara Sammelan` in Lucknow,
said she had come to know that Congress and BJP had planned to
install Digvijay Singh and Rajnath Singh respectively as Chief
Ministers in the event of these parties forming the government
in the key state.

Mayawati had said she apprehended that with her making
their plan public, these two parties might project some
Brahmin as the Chief Minister.

"If Brahmins get misguided by such designs they will not
achieve much as feudal power will once again exploit innocent
people," she had said.

Singh, who is the AICC in-charge for Uttar Pradesh, also
said that Congress will hold rallies in each assembly segment
of the state for the next two months beginning with Rahul
Gandhi`s rally in Phulpur, near Allahabad, on monday.

Phulpur is the place from where Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru
was elected in the first Lok Sabha polls.

The Congress will also come out a charge sheet on the
issue of corruption against BSP government, which will be
submitted to the Uttar Pradesh Governor after a `maha` rally
of the party in Lucknow sometime in January-February, Singh,
who is a Congress general secretary, said.
