    NEW DELHI: Congress on Tuesday rejected its general secretary Digvijaya Singh's remarks that the model of two power centres has not worked well, asserting that a unique relationship exists between party chief Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

    "The relationship which exists between the Congress president and the Prime Minister today is unique and something which has never been seen before and perhaps this should be the ideal model for future also," Congress general secretary Janardan Dwivedi told reporters here.

    Digvijaya Singh had recently dubbed the experiment of "two power centres" in UPA as a failure and suggested that Rahul Gandhi should not opt to nominate a Prime Minister if the party gets a majority in the next Lok Sabha polls.

    "Personally, I feel this model hasn't worked very well. Because, I personally feel there should not be two power centres and I think whoever is the PM must have the authority to function," he had said.

    To a question on Rahul Gandhi, Dwivedi said the Congress vice-president has made it clear that his priority is party organisation.

    "Rahul Gandhi has said and as I and the party understand it, he has made it clear that now there is no question of the Prime Minister's post," Dwivedi said.

    He also said the party will take a call later on the leadership issue after the Lok Sabha elections.

    "Today, Manmohan Singh is the Prime Minister and everybody accepts him," he said.

    Referring to the relations between the Prime Minister and the Congress president, he said unlike other political parties where the party chief and the government head share uneasy relations, in UPA the two have shared a good equation for a long time.

    The statement is a mere damage control after Diggy's latest bout of foot in the mouth fever. Anyways election is so far away and the scenario will be know only after the election.

    Diggy is Sain's poodle, and opens his mouth on cue. His statement about failure of extra-constitutional set up was a warning to the future aspirant watchmen.

    So it is now officially acknowledged that Shri Rahul Gandhi is not a fit candidate to lead the party and the nation.
