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

Rahul had on Friday chaired a meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC), his first after taking over as Congress president. "The main expression was that he (Modi) has handed over Gujarat to a few vested interests and he has taken tremendous benefits from Gujarat but Gujarat hasn't received anything in return", he said. We take our own decision.

Gandhi accused Modi of being silent on the Congress' questions about the "change in Rafale deal". "I send my good wishes to people of both states", he said.

"I want to congratulate all workers for a well-fought election. I was surprised when I went to Gujarat", he said. We saw the results. "And he has had nothing to say about that since then", he said. "How prime minister Modi, Arun Jaitley and the BJP stands exposed today with the 2G verdict by special CBI Court".

He said, "this is also an indication that neither the BJP nor the Congress is showing any interest to secure Muslim votes".

They dwelt on how "false propaganda" on the 2G spectrum allocation under the UPA government had become the BJP's most potent weapon to malign the Congress as corrupt. "BJP maligned the country and the Congress party for years together making false allegations of corruption as their principle strategy to gain power", Randeep Surjewala said during a press conference here. The scriptwriter of the story was former CAG Vinod Rai and the director, producer, propaganda chairman and secretaries were BJP leaders. We do not prescribe anything for any other political party leaders. "The entire 2G trial has been directly monitored by the Supreme Court with reports of its progress submitted to it on a monthly basis".

"One thing very clearly emerges that even all the other CAG reports, which were tabled during the tenure of Vinod Rai were figments of imagination, were specifically created to vitiate the atmosphere and they need to be consigned to the dustbin of history", he said.

It was among the major corruption scandals that came to light during the second term of the UPA government headed by former prime minister Manmohan Singh.
