Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijay Singh does not see the possibility of a hung house in the state after next month's Assembly elections but has kept the options open for a possible tie up in the post-poll scenario.
"In the history of Madhya Pradesh, people have always given a clear verdict and this time also I hope they will give a clear majority to Congress party," he said during a campaign trail.
Asked whether the party would tie up with Bahujan Samaj Party for support to form a govt in case of need, Singh parried the question saying it would depend on the situation (after the polls). "Ultimately such decisions are taken by the Congress Working Committee and the leadership," he said.
Referring to talk of change of government, the Chief Minister shot back that twice in the past Janata Party and BJP were voted to power but they were not able to provide stable government. "Then change for what?" he asked.
