New Delhi, Oct 24: With the unconditional support provided by Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh towards Rahul Gandhi infamous now, the matter was validated further when Singh spoke to a TV channel and said, "Rahul is very focussed. He keeps himself involved with his areas of responsibilities, which are Youth Congress and NSUI and does not get involved in matters which are to be tackled by ministers. He has leadership and it is evolving. Rahul does not need to grab power." He was replying to a question if Rahul had essential leadership qualities.

On the political ambitions of Priyanka Vadra, Digvijay Singh opined, "Both (Rahul and Priyanka) are different personalities. Rahul is interested in politics, Priyanka isn't. They are very close to each other and nobody can separate them."

On the controversy that had erupted following Rahul Gandhi's refusal to meet villagers from Anna Hazare's village, Ralegan Siddhi, Digvijay Singh clarified, "Rahul is not averse to meeting them. But they were never invited by him. Congress MP P. T. Thomas invited them and announced it to the media. Rahul is quite open to meeting anyone from Anna Hazare's side. But you should keep in mind that Rahul meeting anybody sent by Anna will have wider political implications."

On being asked on his political ambitions, Digvijay Singh commented, "I am happy continuing with what I am doing now. My job is to strengthen the Congress in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar." With rumours that Singh would be the obvious choice for Home Minister if Rahul became the PM, he replied on the rumour, "The home minister takes the blame for everything that goes wrong."
