Adding fuel to rumours about his growing proximity to the BJP, Congress MP Sanjay Singh on Tuesday shared dais with several leaders of the BJP during his birthday function here, but preferred to play his cards close to himself.

Asked whether he will join the BJP and contest on its ticket from Amethi Lok Sabha constituency, represented by Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, Mr. Singh merely saying the list of candidates would clear the matter. “I have not quit politics. Everything will be clear once the list of candidates for the Lok Sabha polls is released by the parties,” the Congress MP from Sultanpur said.

“Amethi has taught lessons to outsiders from time to time. In Amethi, there are people who do not even belong to Uttar Pradesh. I will take a decision in keeping with whatever is required for Amethi and its people,” he said. “Amethi, Rae Bareli and Sultanpur have shown strength by rejecting outsiders from time to time,” he told reporters.- PTI
