Cong-NCP split not due to me or Rahul: Sonia

Sonia Gandhi said that neither she nor Rahul Gandhi had any role in ending the alliance.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday said that neither she nor party vice-president Rahul Gandhi had any role in ending the alliance with the Nationalist Congress Party in Maharashtra.

“Neither me, nor because of Rahul or the Congress,’’ she said when asked about NCP leader Sharad Pawar’s remark holding Rahul Gandhi responsible for breaking of alliance between the two parties. Sonia along with Rahul and senior party leaders Ambika Soni and Ghulam Nabi Azad was on two-day visit of flood-hit areas of the state.

On Monday, she met people in the Valley and on Tuesday she flew to border Poonch district. Later at Jammu, the Congress leaders distributed relief material. About the relief efforts made by the Centre, Sonia said everybody had participated in the distribution of relief material. “I do not want to do politics over the issue. The bigger issue before us today is how to rehabilitate these people,” she said. ENS
