Sonia displeased with Jogi's signature campaign
New Delhi, May 11: Congress president Sonia Gandhi today took a serious view of a signature campaign led by party MP Ajit Jogi urging Ms Gandhi to become Prime Minister in the wake of her re-election to Lok Sabha from Rae Bareli.
Former Chhattisgarh chief minister Mr Jogi claimed to have obtained signatures of 25 MPs urging Ms Gandhi to accept Primeministership folowing her re-election.
''The demand by Mr Jogi is objectionable. Such action in the party cannot be approved of,'' Ms Gandhi said.
Earlier, Congress spokesman Rajiv Shukla told reporters that the party High Command and the AICC disapproved of the move initiated by Mr Jogi.
''Ms Gandhi's displeasure has been conveyed to Mr Jogi,'' he added.
Mr Shukla clarified that the Congress had nothing to with Mr Jogi's move which was his personal campaign and he had been told to stop it forthwith.
He also said that if Ms Gandhi really wanted to become the Prime Minister, all the Congress MPs would have readily agreed to elect her as their leader.
