Jogi's plea was nothing but overenthusiasm: Cong
New Delhi, May 12 (UNI) The Congress today said after a categorical response had been given to the plea made by former Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Ajit Jogi to Congress president Sonia Gandhi urging her to become Prime Minister the matter should be treated as closed.
''The matter should be allowed to rest as the person addressed has given a categorical answer,'' party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi said.
He was replying to a query at a press briefing on whether action would be taken against 25 MPs, led by Mr Jogi, who wrote to Mrs Gandhi urging her to become Prime Minister following her re-election to the Lok Sabha from Rae Bareli.
Describing Mr Jogi's action as ''overenthusiasm and erroneous response'', Mr Singhvi said, ''Mr Jogi's views have been scotched comprehensively.'' He, however, skirted a question whether the action of the 25 MPs had done any damage to the party.
