NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday said that he is sad over his brother Daljit Singh Kohli’s joining the BJP but added that he had no control over his siblings’ decisions.

“I feel very sad. But I have no control over them. They are all adults,” he told newspersons when asked to react to his brother’s induction into the BJP at a rally in Amritsar in the presence of Narendra Modi.

However, despite this latest embarrassment for the Congress, Manmohan Singh struck an optimistic note on UPA’s prospects of returning to power.

“UPA III is not an impossibility,” he told newspersons on the sidelines of the Padma awards ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhawan on Saturday morning.

Daljit Singh Kohli, the Prime Minister’s youngest sibling, joined the BJP at Modi’s rally organized to give the party’s Amritsar Lok Sabha candidate and key strategist Arun Jaitley a final push ahead of the April 30 elections in Punjab.

Daljit is a textile exporter in Amritsar.
