However, he will contest the next Lok Sabha elections if the party gives him the ticket, he said, adding that there was no way in which he would contest the assembly elections.

Singh said that his son, Jayawardan , however, would contest next year's assembly elections only if he gets the ticket.

He alleged that the way in which corruption had spread all over Madhya Pradesh during the last eight years of Bharatiya Janata Party rule had not been dreamt of.
