Days before the results were declared and on the basis of exit-polls , Congress performance when analysed as bad , senior leaders went ahead shielding Congress General Secretary, Rahul Gandhi, by considering themselves as responsible for the humiliating result that came into being today.Rita Bahuguna Joshi,the UP Congress Chief blamed the Candidates and defended for the loss and appreciated Rahul’s work.
Digvijay Singh and Salman Khurshid tried taking the responsibility in the media however, Rahul Gandhi has been courageous enough to accept that Congress has a lot to do in Uttar Pradesh to create an impact. He took the responsibility and declared results as a lesson to him as well. So Digvijay Singh and Salman Khurshid need not be showing any generosity by taking the congress loss on their shoulders. Rahul Gandhi also congratulated Mulayam Singh Yadav and son Akhilesh for their outstanding performance and assured he would continue to work for the welfare of the state.
Well, surely this is like a leader who takes the responsibility of loss not just the credit of win. Uttar Pradesh elections saw Rahul Gandhi as an aggressive campaigner trying to promote his party dead-hard and even after senior leaders trying to treat the prince of Gandhi kingdom like one and willing to take all failures on their name, Rahul Gandhi took the initiative to admit he was the one who should shoulder the defeat.
