Digvijay Singh spoke to media welcoming election schedule and on alliance with TRS, Here is what he said…
“I congratulate Soniaji, Sri Man Mohan Singh for supporting Telangana. We will keep our assurances to Seemandhra given by the PM in Rajya Sabha. We welcome election declaration. Elections should happen freely and fairly. TRS said it will merge with Congress, now it says it will look at alliances, to be looked into by a committee, it has assured to stay in UPA even after polls, I welcome their intention. Congress is looking into these matters and will take appropriate decisions. Decision on merger came from KCR, they ruled it out, it came from them, not from us, we would have welcomed the merger, we welcome alliance too. As it has indicated that it will remain in UPA, we appreciate it.”
Digvijay Singh brushed off questions on Kiran Kumar Reddy.
On a related question Union Minister Jairam Ramesh too has said that the issue of alliance with TRS is very much alive and is being dealt with by the uppermost leadership of Congress.
