‘Sonia-PM relationship ideal model for future’

‘Sonia-PM relationship ideal model for future’
Congress on Tuesday rejected its general secretary Digvijay 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.

Digvijay 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.

Meanwhile, minister of state for home R P N Singh on Tuesday backed his senior party colleague Janardhan Dwivedi’s comment that the relationship between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi is unique, saying whatever the UPA has achieved in its tenure is only because of their teamwork.

‘There is no need for me to comment on what my senior leader has said. The relationship between the Prime Minister and the UPA chairperson has been a very ideal one during the UPA tenure. And I believe that whatever the UPA has achieved today is because of their teamwork,’ he told mediapersons here.
