With a view to keep its doors open for all probable post poll allies, the Congress has ruled out any possibility of dismissing Mayawati government in UP. The demand was set by SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav for supporting a UPA government at the centre after elections.
AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh told media persons that there was no question of dismissing a duly elected state government. He was answering the query if whether Congress party was in favour of dismissing the Mayawati government in UP.
“How is it possible? It is not constitutionally possible,” he said in reply to further questions on the issue.
In response to the question whether BSP is communal, he said that the Congress considered only BJP and Shiv Sena as communal parties.
Answering the question whether Mayawati is an option for Congress, Singh merely said “I have always said politics is the art of possible.”
On former Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumarswamy meeting Congress chief Sonia Gandhi last night, he said, “it is an indication of the direction in which the political wind is blowing.”
About Congress efforts to reach out to allies, he said that the party is firmly aligned with its UPA allies and that all talk of future alliances would take place after May 16 when the election results are declared.
Singh claimed that the Congress party would emerge as the single largest party after the polls and perform better than it did in the 2004 elections.
