Digvijaya Singh lauds shift in Modi's thought process

New Delhi, Dec 5 : Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh Thursday said there has been a "marked shift" in BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's thought process and that he has started "to realise that inclusive politics is the only way forward".


"There has been a market shift in his thought process. Modi is slowly gravitating towards Vajpayee's way of thinking. Modi has begun to realise that inclusive politics is the only way forward and that is reflecting in his speeches," said Digvijaya Singh.

"In a democracy, even a tea-vendor can dream of becoming PM. Our fight is not against a person, but a thought process," Singh said while speaking at the India Today's Agenda Aajtak meet here.

Reacting to the exit poll results that predicted a win for the Bharatiya Janata Party in four of the five states where assembly elections were held recently, he said, "I do not believe in opinion or exit polls."

"Opinion poll only reflects the view of a few thousand people. We must wait for the results to come out," he said.

He also said assembly election results cannot be used to extrapolate the outcome in general elections.

"The issues are different in assembly and general elections and it does not take a lot of time for the atmosphere to change in politics," he added.
