INDICATIONS ARE that All India Congress Committee general secretary and former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh Digvijay Singh might break his vow made during the last Assembly elections of not to contest elections for the next 10 years if Congress does not return to power.

He gave this hint while talking to newsmen here at Guna Saturday evening. He was here to pay his condolence to the bereaved family of late Jairaj Soni, an active Congress worker who died recently.

On the question whether Congress could come to a compromise with Uma Bharti if she was to contest against Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan from Budhni, Digvijay Singh replied this matter could be considered only on the condition if Uma announces her decision to contest from Budhni.

When asked whether he would contest from Budhni opposite Shivraj Singh Chouhan if the party High Command so wished, he said he would abide by whatever the party High Command decides. Ruling out any possibility of a coalition with NCP during the forthcoming Assembly elections in Assam, Singh said there was no such possibility at present because the terms under which NCP wants to enter an alliance are not acceptable to Congress.

On a query relating to failure of Congress alliance in Karnataka, he said such a situation arose due to varied political conditions in Karnataka. BJP was entering into immoral political alliances in Karnataka and other places all for power, he said in a charging tone.

Regarding Congress organizational elections in Madhya Pradesh he said the matter of district presidents was not pending only in Guna, but in all the districts of the State.?
