Political lunches can cause indigestion: Congress

New Delhi, Jan 14 (UNI) The Congress today sought to downplay the luncheon meeting between AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in Chennai, and warned both the leaders against a possible "political indigestion." "It is good to have lunches. But political lunches can cause indigestion," AICC Spokesman Abishek Manu Singhvi told mediapersons, while reacting to the luncheon meeting, which is seen in political circles, as a revival of ties between the BJP and the AIADMK.

Dr Singhvi indicated that the party did not attach any political signifiance to the meeting as even Ms Jayalalithaa did not know if she was part of the UNPA or the Third Front or with the BJP.

In this context, he asked if Telugu Desam Party leader Chandrababu Naidu or Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav, who floated the UNPA in the company of Ms Jayalalithaa during the Presidential election last year, could own up the former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and accept her as part of their coalition.
