Not just Priyanka, even Sonia Gandhi refuses to learn lessons after 2019 poll debacle, resumes attack on EC and EVM

Despite no evidence of manipulation of EVMs, it does not stop the Congress party to continue blaming it for the defeat instead of looking inwards.

After Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said that the Congress party lost the Lok Sabha elections because some workers didn’t work wholeheartedly, her mother and former Congress president Sonia Gandhi had also chosen to deflect the blame for the disastrous performance of the party. Continuing with the Congress party’s attack on the Election Commission  and the electoral process itself in the country, Sonia Gandhi has said that “many types of doubts” had emerged over the country’s electoral processes following the Lok Sabha elections.

Addressing a thanksgiving rally at her parliamentary constituency Raebarli in Uttar Pradesh following her win from the seat as the lone Congress MP from the state, she said that BJP has crossed all limits of dignity to retain power. Reiterating the Congress allegation of EVM manipulation by BJP, Sonia Gandhi said that there can be no smoke without fire.

She accused BJP of making all sorts of plan to cheat the voters to win the elections, and said that attempts were made to mislead voters in 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The whole country knows whether what happened was ethical or unethical, but it can’t be more unfortunate for the country that all ethics are forgotten to remain in power, she said attacking the BJP. Various kinds of doubts have emerged on the electoral system of the country among us from time to time in the recent years, Sonia Gandhi said blaming the election system for the performance of the party in elections.

Sensing that the party won’t be able to defeat BJP in the elections, the Congress party had started attacking EC and EVMs during the campaigning itself. It had alleged the EC of being biased towards Modi, and repeated the long-debunked EVM tampering theories. It may be noted that in these elections, VVPAT slips in 20625 VVPAT machines were compared with EVM results, and not a single mismatch was found. But this does not stop the Congress party to continue blaming others for the defeat instead of looking inwards.

In the same thanksgiving event, Priyanka Gandhi had said she will find out which Congress workers didn’t work with their heart during the elections, thereby blaming the workers for the defeat. Although media was not allowed in the event limited to party workers, some workers have leaked clips of the speeches of Sonia Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi at the event.
