“We don’t comment on hearsay. The party will let you know if any decision will be taken on it”, Mr Surjewala said.
Earlier also, there were speculations that Congress was trying to field Ms Vadra as opposition’s joint candidate in Varanasi, where Mr Modi is currently representing.
According to a section of party leaders, Ms Vadra’s candidature in Varanasi will benefit Congress as the ruling party is criticising Congress president Rahul Gandhi for his decision to contest from Kerala’s Wayanad.
BJP leaders, including Mr Modi, BJP president Amit Shah and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had criticised Mr Gandhi on the Wayanad candidature, accusing him of appeasing the minority community. (UNI)
