Sonia-PM relationship ideal model for future: Congress
New Delhi: Congress on Tuesday rejected its general secretary Digvijaya Singh's remarks that the model of two power centres has not worked well, asserting that a unique relationship exists between party chief Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
"The relationship which exists between the Congress president and the Prime Minister today is unique and something which has never been seen before and perhaps this should be the ideal model for future also," Congress general secretary Janardan Dwivedi told reporters here.
Digvijaya Singh had recently dubbed the experiment of "two power centres" in UPA as a failure and suggested that Rahul Gandhi should not opt to nominate a Prime Minister if the party gets a majority in the next Lok Sabha polls. "Personally, I feel this model hasn't worked very well. Because, I personally feel there should not be two power centres and I think whoever is the PM must have the authority to function," he had said.
After BJP swept the Rajasthan Assembly polls, BJP�s State CM candidate Vasundhara Raje said that the party will work for the development of the State unlike Congress who had deteriorated the State with its bad governance and corruption.
