Jairam Ramesh says 'Congress can't come back to power', chary Salman Khurshid stays mum

External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid on Friday refused to comment on Union Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh's comment that the ruling Congress Party has structural issues, and that it would not be possible for it to come to power on its own soon.

Khurshid was interacting with the media in Rajasthan's Jaipur city.

Ramesh earlier told a TV channel that he didn't think the Congress could come to power on its own.

"The Congress has structural issues," he added.

Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati on her part said that Jairam Ramesh was saying nothing new.

"What is new in what he is saying? The Congress government is in power with the support of other parties. The UPA I was also formed under Congress, with support from other parties," she said.

The Rural Development Minister's comment comes ahead of the Congress Party's 'Chintan Shivir' in Rajasthan's Jaipur city where it is expected to formulate its strategies for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
