  • Congress lost Gujarat elections due to Indiscipline irrelevant comments accept party members

There will be a Congress party workers' meet at Gujarat University Convention Hall at GNBC ground in Ahmedabad.

MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi for visiting temples - "mandir hopping - while campaigning in Gujarat and ignoring mosques and dargahs". "Let us see what you call it".

While campaigning for the Congress in the Gujarat assembly elections, Rahul visited many temples.

"If BJP had a film franchise it would be called Lie Hard #BJPLieHard #BJPLies #HowManyBJPLies", Gandhi Tweeted.

However, the Gandhi scion said that the perception of the party's ability to win seats in the state has changed following the results.

"I have given outside support and as of now I have not joined the BJP", he said in reply to a question.




The party lost power in Himachal Pradesh too.

He along with Congress General Secretary in-charge Ashok Gehlot and Gujarat Congress President Bharatsinh Solanki performed puja at the temple. We saw the results.

After the decision on one of the biggest corruption scandals which took place during Manmohan Singh's government, the 47-year-old Congress chief said, "You all know the truth now about 2G, the truth is in front of you".

While addressing the newly-elected MLAs in the state, Gandhi asked them to keep working for the people of the state as all ayes are now set upon them and their performance will impact the Congress in the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha election.

Mr Gandhi also continued his efforts to claim the Hindutva space by offering prayers at the famous Somnath temple in Gujarat while on a post-poll visit to the state.
