  • Congress lost Gujarat elections due to Indiscipline irrelevant comments accept party members

Out of 182 assembly seats in Gujarat, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) bagged 99, Congress won 77 and others won seven seats.

The dominant sentiment at Friday's Congress Working Committee meeting was that Gujarat had shown Rahul Gandhi as capable of infusing new energy into the party and that the people had begun to see through Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "false propaganda".

"The entire foundation of the BJP is based on lies. Narendra Modi's Gujarat model is also a lie". "So the idea, their model, is to come up with a lie, spread that lie, and just keep repeating that lie until people believe the lie".

Surjewala's remarks come after all accused in the 2G spectrum allocation scam case, including former telecom minister A Raja and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) MP Kanimozhi, were acquitted by the special CBI court on Thursday for want of evidences.

Surjewala said former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh also referred to the challenges and the need to for the party to fulfill its responsibilities.

Rahul Gandhi also hinted that there are certain people within the Congress who were working against the party during the Gujarat assembly elections and promised that action will be taken against them.

The Congress chief will talk to leaders from South Gujarat, North Gujarat, Central Gujarat and the Saurashtra-Kutch region and ascertain the reasons behind the party's defeat, though the party had improved its performance over 2012 elections. Our party played a very positive role in keeping everybody together. "The then CAG (Comptroller and Auditor General) Vinod Rai had announced that the government had suffered a loss of ₹1,76,000 crore", he said. The whole architecture of the BJP is about lies. "The entire 2G trial has been directly monitored by the Supreme Court with reports of its progress submitted to it on a monthly basis".

He further said that the manner in which Congress campaigned for Gujarat has made the country think that they were not campaigning for elections but were on a temple run.
