"Mulayam's remarks are of no significance"

Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh on Monday said Samajwadi Party (SP) supremo Mulayan Singh Yadav's remarks on the possibility of early general elections do not have any significance to the ruling party.

"Some regional parties are such that the only politics they practice is of power," Digvijaya told media.

"But these remarks are of no significance to us," he said.

With the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) now dependent on the SP chief´s support more after the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) pulled out over Sri Lanka issue, Yadav has indicated possibility of early polls and pitched for a coalition government at the centre which is neither of the Congress nor of the BJP.

Media reports said Yadav is for early polls in 2013 even though the country is scheduled to go for a general elections in 2014.

Even his party leaders like Ram Chandra Kushwaha are naming Yadav as the next Prime Minister of India.

Yadav at a rally in Maharashtra´s Sangli on Sunday said coalition government is the need of the hour at the Centre ´since no single party can come to power on its own strength´.

He urged like-minded parties to come together.
