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."
