"The opposition will continue to oppose but we will continue to work," Shinde said.
United Progressive Alliance [ Images ] chairperson Sonia Gandhi [ Images ] had set an example by refusing to become the mrime minister even after the Congress Legislature Party had elected her as the leader, he said.
"She refused to be the prime minister and instead nominated Manmohan Singh, a minority leader, for the post.
"People fight for post of sarpanch but she has made such a big sacrifice. Now, people are levelling allegations (against her)," Shinde said.
