Samajwadi Party, which is supporting UPA from outside, on Tuesday saw "internal Congress politics" behind the disruptions by the BJP in Parliament wondering whether it was for replacing Prime Minister Manmohan Singh with Rahul Gandhi.

"Some people from inside Congress want to remove Manmohan Singh and bring in the 'Yuvraaj'. I have my doubts if this politics (demand of PMs resignation by BJP) is being played out from within Congress," senior SP leader Mohan Singh said.

Congress, however, outrightly rejected this statement with party general secretary Janardan Dwivedi saying, "There can be no bigger false imagination than this."

"The party has repeated this several times...before 2009 elections, said in our manifesto that our Prime Ministerial candidate is Manmohan Singh. After that also, we have said this several times that he will continue to remain the Prime Minister till 2014. He (Mohan Singh) should not bother about this," he said.

Regretting the repeated adjournment of Parliament, Singh alleged BJP was raking up the CAG report to prepare the grounds for the coming elections.

Meanwhile, SP General Secretary Ramgopal Yadav refused to offer any comments on the remarks made by party leader Mohan Singh.
