The Congress and the government scotched rumours Tuesday that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh would announce his resignation Friday to make way for party vice president Rahul Gandhi. Meanwhile, both the BJP and AAP parties termed it dynastic politics. Television channels, quoting sources, said the prime minister is likely to resign during his press conference Jan. 3, paving the way for Gandhi. The government denied it. "This report is completely baseless, based on conjecture and insinuation. I don't even think it should be dignified with a response," Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari said.
