Congress leadership does not consult us, they are responsible for election loss, says party leader from UP

63 of the 67 candidates fielded by Congress in UP had lost their security deposits in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections. Sonia Gandhi was the only candidate who won.

The internal rift in the Congress Party that became visible after the party lost miserably in the recent Lok Sabha elections seems to be widening. Recently some Congress leaders were seen arguing and pushing one another publically in Delhi. The Congress leaders who had arrived there to attend a review meeting on election results on UP broke into an argument after the meeting. A Congress leader called the spat their internal matter.

Talking to ANI, Congress leader K K Sharma said that he had to wait for hours to take part in the review meeting. He said that he had been waiting for the meeting from 10 a.m. but the meeting took place at 3 p.m.

Sharma held the higher leadership of the party responsible for the election results alleging that the decisions are taken by the higher leadership without consulting other members. He said that he had informed Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia that he wanted to discuss over several issues regarding senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad.
