Ajit Singh joins UPA, may soon get cabinet berth

Ajit Singh's joining the UPA has led to speculation of his likely induction in the union cabinet. He might get the coveted civil aviation portfolio, said sources.

Digvijay Singh, who is in charge of Uttar Pradesh, told reporters that Ajit Singh wrote to United Progressive Alliance chairperson Sonia Gandhi expressing his desire to join the UPA and she accepted his request.

Ajit Singh also met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Monday. The entry of RLD, which has five members in the Lok Sabha, could help the Congress in western Uttar Pradesh during next year's assembly elections.
