The Agriculture Minister, whose party is a key partner in the UPA, had yesterday said that if Congress does not do well in Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, the blame may go to Rahul Gandhi. Objecting to Union Minister Sharad Pawar’s statement that Rahul Gandhi would be blamed if Congress fails in Uttar Pradesh, senior party leader Digvijay Singh said here on Sunday that the UP poll results would surprise the NCP chief.
Pawar is an experienced leader and he must be speaking after a lot of thought process. But I have objections to his statement. When the assembly poll results will be out on March 6, Pawar would be surprised He should not have given such a statement, Digvijay Singh said.
