They tried to do so in places where they still have no existence. ”
The former Union Minister emphasized, “The Congress should not accept the pessimistic view that it has lost too much of its land and cannot regain it.” I think that with commitment and belief we can do it and we should too. ”He agreed with the notion that people in West Bengal voted with a well thought out strategy that led to the Congress and the Left parties Was wiped out.
He was asked what he thought about the opinion of some Congress leaders that the Congress suffered losses due to its alliance with the Indian Secular Front in West Bengal and the AIUDF in Assam. Khurshid said, “When you are not successful, such explanations are given.” When you are successful, you are given a different type of explanation. ”
According to him, “I don’t think the post-election explanation has any meaning unless it helps you analyze your decision-making process and the merits of the decision.” All I can say is that a lot of things can be said from both sides. ”Khurshid also said that the Congress manifesto in the assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh will reveal the sentiments among the people.
