Digvijay Singh, who had come to attend the marriage ceremony of daughter of Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee vice-president Rana KP Singh, said Modi was not a threat to the Congress.
"It is a matter of perception. Some people feel that he is a threat to the Congress. But it is not correct and he is more or less a media creation that anything else," said the AICC general secretary. Digvijay Singh disapproved the mudslinging by the leaders of political parties employed against each other during the election campaign saying that, "Our attack should be on policies and programmes of others rather than personal attacks."
He added that the Congress had a good chance of winning the assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Delhi.
The Congress leader added that fearing defeat in the assembly elections the BJP had become nervous in Madhya Pradesh. He suspected foul play in two fire incidents in five days, wherein a record room of Madhya Pradesh state secretariat and the Vindhyachal building, which houses offices of several heads of departments and where all important files "concerning corruption" of the state government were believed to have been kept, were gutted.
In a reply to a question, he said results of the assembly elections in five states would not have any impact on the Lok Sabha polls as issues were different in assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
