Indore, Jan 29: 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 today that the UP poll results would surprise the NCP chief.


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.

“Pawar is an experienced leader and he must be speaking after a lot of thought-process. But I have objections to his statement. He should not  have given such a statement,” Digvijay Singh said.

“When the assembly poll results will be out on March 6, Pawar would be surprised,” he added.

While talking to a television channel yesterday, Pawar had also said that he saw no possibility of Rahul Gandhi being immediately projected as the PM candidate, even if the Congress does well in the key state.
