Bhopal: Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh today said he would like to contest next Lok Sabha election from Vidisha seat in Madhya Pradesh, currently represented by Leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj.



In an informal talk with reporters, the former chief minister said he had no plans to contest from Rajgarh, which is his hometown, as it has already been represented by Congress member.

To a query whether he will contest from Bellary in Karnataka if Sushma Swaraj enters the fray from there in 2014 polls, Digvijay replied in negative.

Digvijay clarified that though he was prepared to contest from Vidisha, nothing has been formalised yet and names of other constituencies are also doing round.
Swaraj had won the 2009 election to the 15th Lok Sabha from Vidisha by the margin of over 4,00,000 votes.

Digvijay also said that current Bhopal MP and former chief minister Kailash Joshi would not contest next year's general elections.
