The Congress will not declare Rahul Gandhi as its prime ministerial candidate in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, senior party leader Digvijay Singh hinted on Friday while dismissing suggestions that the BJP’s projection of Narendra Modi is a challenge to it.

He also did not say whether Prime Minister Manmohan Singh could be a candidate for the top post once again if the party wins next year’s elections. “We do not have a presidential form of government. The party does not declare PM or CM candidates before elections.

Asked about thw BJP’s elevation of Modi as its election campaign chief, just a step short of announcing him the prime ministerial candidate, Singh said, “We are not concerned. It is not an issue with us. The BJP is free to take any decision. We are in the politics of ideology and not personality… The Congress does not believe in the politics of polarisation.”
