After blaming Praveen Chakravarty for 2019 poll debacle, Congress all set to disband the Data Analytics department

Praveen Chakravarty was responsible for handling the Shakti App on the basis of which inputs were given to Rahul Gandhi.

Congress was handed a crushing defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections with PM Modi led BJP winning more seats than they did in 2014. After the poll debacle, Congress tried its best to blame several factors for its loss. From blaming Congress leaders of not chanting ‘chowkidaar chor hai’ loud enough to a dynast like Rahul Gandhi blaming other leaders of looking out for their sons, Congress tried everything. One of the scapegoats for Rahul Gandhi’s incompetence was Praveen Chakravarty, Congress’ Data Analytics Department’s head.

The Congress blamed Praveen Chakravarty for misleading Rahul Gandhi and feeding him wrong information that led to the poll debacle in 2019. In fact, the Congress also suspected that Praveen Chakravarty was a mole planted by the Modi government to ensure that Rahul Gandhi is fed misinformation in order to hand him a loss.

Now, the Congress party has decided to disband the Data Analytics Department altogether. According to a report in DNA, the Congress is all set to disband the Data Analytics Department that was once headed by Praveen Chakravarty.

Praveen Chakravarty was responsible for handling the Shakti App on the basis of which inputs were given to Rahul Gandhi. He was evidently made to believe by Praveen Chakravarty that the party will be securing somewhere between 164 and 184 seats in the elections.

Rahul Gandhi, based on these superficial reports, seems to contacted his UPA allies M.K. Stalin, Akhilesh Yadav, Omar Abdullah, Sharad Pawar and Tejashwi Yadav amongst others, and offered to accommodate some of them in the next Cabinet. He had even reportedly obtained two letters from a senior legal luminary to enable him to stake claim to form the next government. The Congress party had even planned a victory procession to celebrate the exit of the BJP and had instructed a select few Delhi leaders to mobilise a crowd of nearly 10,000 people outside the AICC office on 24, Akbar Road.
